                Chief Minister of Maharashtra state Shri. Ashok Chavan celebrated Republic Day on January 26 by flagging off a test run of the first Mumbai Monorail car. 'It is a proud moment for all of us at Scomi', said Suhaimi Yaacob, Country President of the Malaysian firm which is supplying 15 four-car train sets.
                The elevated line is being developed by a consortium of Scomi and construction parent Larsen & Toubro under a Rs24·6bn turnkey contract awarded by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority in November 2008.

                 The 19·5 km route between Jacob Circle and Chembur with 18 stations is expected to open in 2011. According to Scomi, each train can accommodate 600 passengers, providing a total daily capacity of 300 000 passengers.

Mumbai monorail car delivery begins

First Mumbai monorail car leaves the Scomi factory in Malaysia.

                  The first vehicle for the Mumbai Monorail left Scomi Engineering's Kuala Lumpur factory for India on January 2. 'The first monorail car will play a pivotal role in the preliminary systems interface testing, which is critical in ensuring that the monorail system runs smoothly', said Suhaimi Yaacob, Country President of Scomi India.

                      Scomi is supplying 15 four-car trainsets as part of a consortium with Larsen & Toubro, which was awarded the Rs24·6bn turnkey contract for the 19·5 km straddle monorail in November 2008. Opening of the first 11 km between Jacob Circle and Wadala is planned for mid-2011, followed by a second phase taking the line to Chembur.

                  The Malaysian firm was previously responsible for the Kuala Lumpur monorail. It has invested US$11·8m in upgrading its manufacturing plant located to the north of the city, which has a 1 km test track and the capacity to produce a monorail car body every five to seven days.

                 The company also hopes to expand into the heavy rail and gas-fuelled bus markets.
