Construction progress Cablebús Línea 1
Efficient, reliable and focused: These are the values Doppelmayr/Garaventa displays at the construction site for the Cablebús Línea 1 in Mexico City. Indios Verdes, the largest traffic hub of the Cablebús Línea 1, will soon be ready to start operations. The towers between the stations Indios Verdes and La Pastora have already been installed. Ideal for a dense urban environment, they have a small physical footprint. Next to Tlalpexco station, which is an integrated part of an urban upgrade program, a public soccer field is also nearly completed.
Doppelmayr/Garaventa’s lean logistic management guarantees short construction times. The implementation of the cable car system and its mostly steel components (towers, station equipment, station drives, sheave assemblies and the rope) is being handled fast and efficiently on site.
A highlight is the rope of the Cablebús urban ropeway with a total length of 9,2 km, providing a comfortable and smooth ride.
