Danhai Phase 1 has a total distance of 9.7km, which includes a 5.2km at-grade section and a 4.5km elevated section for which Pandrol CDM track will install its QTrack embedded track system. The award follows on from the company’s previous success in supplying the same system on the Kaohsiung LRT Phase 1. The project has been awarded to the consortium of China Steel Corporation (the Turnkey E&M contractor), United Steel Engineering & Construction (the Civil Contractor) and the Taiwan Rolling Stock Corporation. CTCI Corporation has been awarded the EPC contract for the track work package.
