Metro tunnel, Ankara, Turkey

Ankara metro is one of the 4 underground railway networks in Turkey and currently has only one line, which links the south-eastern city centre with the north-western Batikent along a length of 14.6 kilometres.

MSD produced the equipment for transporting tunnelling materials and transporting persons for extension of Ankara's metro.

The following five items supplied by MSD made work on extending the Ankara metro easier:
  • 6 spoil containers 13 m³ – tippers
  • 1 unloading unit
  • 1 passenger car + bogie
  • 1 mortar carrier + bogie
  • 2 segment wagons

The wagons, with a maximum height of 2400 mm and a maximum width of 1400 mm, were equiped with spring-mounted axles, pneumatic brake systems and Willison 1’ couplings, so that the 350 mm diameter wheels optimally harmonise with the 750 mm track gauge.
