Default Shortlisted bidders for new DLR fleet

Invitations to negotiate for a contract to supply 43 trainsets for the
Docklands Light Railway driverless light metro were issued to four
prequalified bidders by Transport for London on November 17.

The prequalified bidders a

- Alstom Transport UK;
- Bombardier Transportation;
- CAF;
- a consortium of Siemens, Stadler Bussnang and Stadler Rail Valencia.

TfL invited expressions of interest in the contract in May, when it put the
estimated value at between £500m and £850m excluding VAT. It expects to
award the contract to build the trains in autumn 2018, with entry into
service planned from 2022.

The order for 43 trainsets would include 33 to replace two-thirds of the
existing fleet, and 10 to increase overall capacity.

The 750 V DC third-rail fixed-formation trainsets are required to be
between 86·4 m and 88 m long, longer than the existing sets, with
walk-through gangways, on-board real-time passenger information,
air-conditioning and mobile device charging points.

‘This important step in the procurement process brings us closer to
delivering the new trains needed to support the continued passenger growth
on the DLR, which currently carries 122 million customers a year’, said
TfL’s Director of Rail & Sponsored Services, Jonathan Fox, when the
shortlist was announced. ‘These new trains will enable us to increase
capacity on the network by up to 30%, significantly improving the comfort,
reliability and quality of our service for customers. They will also
support the creation of further jobs and homes in the Docklands area.’

They forgot to add "Must not rock side to side like a drunk pony at speeds
above 30mph".
