TESTING of the first driverless metro train for Singapore’s Thomson-East Coast Line is underway at Mandai depot in the north of the island in preparation for the opening of the first phase of the line at the end of next year.

Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) awarded a consortium of Kawasaki Heavy Industries and CSR Qingdao Sifang (now part of CRRC Corporation) a $S749m ($US 549m) contract in May 2014 to supply 91 four-car trains.

The 43km, 31-station TEL will open in five phases between 2019 and 2024, linking the north of the island with central and eastern districts.
