London Cable Car – Martifer at the Olympic Games in London

The new London Cable Car makes the connection between the two margins of the Thames River, in the North, at the Greenwich area, in the South, in Royal Victoria docks, a less developed area of the city.

Martifer participated in the construction of this infrastructure by executing glass, stainless steel and aluminium composite cladding and façades, including stainless steel balustrades and doors.

The project was concluded in around four months and included the assembly of 1 000 sqm of bomb blast façade, 1 600 sqm of stainless steel cladding, 1 000 sqm of U-glass façade and 500 m of balustrades.

For the assembly of the façades, boats were used in order to allow for the execution of the works on the water.

London Cable Car is a unique project in the United Kingdom that aims to establish a new form of transportation and to promote the development of the North area, also taking advantage of the expected visitors increase during the Olympic Games that start today in London.

The Cable Car is elevated 86 m over the soil, allowing for the passage of big ships in the river, has a 6 m/s maximum speed and allows for passengers to enjoy a unique view of the city.
