Doppelmayr to Start Work on New Cable Liner in London

Post by Advertorial Team

Installation works for the Luton’s automated people mover, known as the Direct Air to Rail Transit (DART) system, is set to begin in 2019 and open for public service by 2021. Image from Doppelmayr.

Thanks to the upcoming Cable Liner Double Shuttle by Doppelmayr, travel times for passengers transiting between central London’s St. Pancras International station and Luton Airport will be just 30 minutes. The DART train will greatly enhance passenger convenience and comfort as the fully automated rope-driven transit line will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days week.

The 2km transport system is comprised of two 4-car trains (170 passengers per train) which operate on two independent tracks. With train frequencies of four minutes, the Cable Liner can deliver up 2,720 passengers per hour per direction.

The system broke ground on April 17th and is part of a larger investment project which aims to support the expected 18 million annual passengers which will fly in and out of Luton airport in the near future.

Doppelmayr will not only operate the train for the first five years, but will partner with nearby schools and colleges in Luton to ensure that local businesses and young people will be involved in the DART’s implementation.

The new Cable Liner builds upon Doppelmayr’s experience and success in the United Kingdom as Luton Airport becomes the second airport in the country to utilize Cable Liner technology after Birmingham’s Air Rail Link project in 2003. To learn more about this project, click here.
