Angri – Maiori

Feasibility study of connection between Angri and Maiori through a hybrid rope-self-propelled system, which, by joining the two Campania villages, allows the connection between two tourist areas among the most famous and valuable in the world: the plain of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. The length of the track, 14 km, represents a challenge that Dimensione Ingenierie has faced by proposing vehicles equipped with on-board electrification that guarantee climatic comfort and video surveillance for passengers.

Technical and economic feasibility study

The designed connection connects the historic center of the city of Angri (Salerno), in the Agro Nocerino – Sarnese area, with the tourist port of the village of Maiori (Salerno), through a hybrid rope-self-propelled system, crossing the Lattari Mountains.

The defined route includes the terminus station at the existing Angri railway station (the railway line connects Naples, Pompeii and Salerno). Intermediate stations have been designed at the Angri motorway junction, as well as at the village of Corbara, the Valico di Chiunzi (pass on the Lattari mountains with an immense landscape and environmental value), the village of Tramonti-Polvica and the hinterland of Maiori. The terminus station on the sea side is foreseen on the port of Maiori, on the Amalfi coast.

The planned system is therefore not just a connection between Angri and Maiori, but allows to combine two of the most prestigious, famous and visited tourist clusters in the world: the Amalfi coast and the Vesuvian area (Pompeii, Naples …).

To minimize the impact of the work within the densely built-up urban center of Angri, the urban section was designed in the tunnel. The hybrid system, in fact, in its rail section in which the vehicle oscillations are minor, allows the definition of segments in the tunnel. The emergence is foreseen via an inclined ramp.

In the extra-urban section of ascent towards the Lattari mountains and descent, along the Regina Maiori valley, towards the sea, the system is instead designed in its variant on a cable, not unlike a traditional cable car.

The route has a length of about 14 km, much higher than the range of application of traditional cableway systems. The electrification of the vehicles, which allows the presence of infotainment systems, security cameras and air conditioning and ventilation systems, together with the panoramic view of the route, allows the designed system to be implemented even in multi-kilometer routes such as the one described.

Feasibility study of the connection between the Sorrento railway station and the village of Sant’Agata sui due Golfi. In order to ensure full urban integration and minimize the visual impact of the work within the urban fabric of Sorrento, the urban section was designed underground. The solution was made possible thanks to the hybrid rope-self-propelled system, which guarantees minimal oscillations in the rail section and is therefore compatible with tunnel segments.

Skyway Monte Bianco

Defined as the “eighth Wonder of the World”, SkyWay Monte Bianco was designed by Dimensione Ingenierie, which also took care of the construction supervision. The cable car system consists of two segments: Pontal d’Entreves- Pavillon and Pavillon- Punta Herbronner, where, on the iconic Terrazza dei Ghiacciai, it is possible to enjoy a spectacular view that embraces all the Western Alps.

Genova – Forte Begato

Connection via hybrid cable-self-propelled system between the port of Genoa and Forte Begato, with an intermediate station. The first section presents the challenging characteristics of an urban segment, and involves the overflight of buildings of considerable height within the Lagaccio district and the installation of line supports with a height greater than 83m; while the second section has characteristics similar to the route of a traditional mountain cableway.

Aosta – Pila Cable Car

Cable car that connects the city of Aosta to the Pila ski area, with two intermediate stations in Les Fleurs and in Plan Praz. The plant, in addition to a castle function, also takes on the role of Local Public Transport.

Col Checrouit – Arp

Final project for the replacement of the current Youla and Arp cable cars in the Courmayeur Mont Blanc area with a “to and fro” cableway system that connects Col Checrouit to the Arp Crest.
