The new fleet of trains are expected to begin operation in 2024.
One of the six new North East Line (NEL) trains have finally arrived in Singapore.
The Land Transport Authority shared on Facebook of the arrival of the train in Singapore. On Apr 4.
The train, donned in a distinctive purple and LTA livery to represent the NEL, were manufactured and assembled in Barcelona, Spain. It has special features like condition monitoring systems which gather data from equipment on the train, allowing train operators to monitor the health of the trains continuously and carry out predictive maintenance.
The train will undergo testing and commissioning works at the Sengkang Depot before it is put to service in 2024, when the NEL extension opens.
