CHINA SHOWCASES FIRST TEL-AVIV LIGHT RAIL VEHICLE OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINE E-mail

The first light rail vehicle (LRV) made for the city of Tel-Aviv, Israel, has been rolled off the production line in Changchun City, northeastern China.

The new metro car was developed by CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles and marks the first time in which a light train manufactured completely in China is entering a market of a developed country.

To meet security needs, the LRV has been custom built, with integrated explosion-proof designs, including a curved train roof, a non-ferromagnetic bottom, and blast-resistant windows to cope with rocks and explosive devices.

A special ceremony on 16 April was attended by representatives of CRRC and NTA Metropolitan Mass Transit System, which is responsible for the light rail project on behalf of the Israeli government.

The white train body is designed to match the cultural heritage of the White City, the world’s largest collection of Bauhaus-style buildings, which is in Tel-Aviv. And the special traction control system, as well as the air-conditioning system, will enable smooth and pleasant trips in the hot and humid Mediterranean weather.
