Tenders to be opened on March 21 for 423 pneumatic-tyred cars required as part on Montreal's 1976-78 metro expansion programme must comply with a new specification designed to reduce heat build-up in tunnels and the associated risks of fire. Floors, walls and ceilings must be of material which does not release noxious gases when heated, and each car must carry fire extinguishers and emergency tools. Choppers with provision for regenerative braking will reduce the amount of waste heat generated, but ventilation inside the cars will also be improved.
