Biella Inclined Lift

Inclined lift that connects the upper and lower parts of the city of Biella, joining the districts of Piano and Piazzo, which replaces the pre-existing nineteenth-century funicular.

The inclined lift of Biella is part of the redevelopment of the existing urban transport system built with the “Biella Piano – Biella Piazzo” funicular, built in 1885 and subsequently modernized several times up to the system currently in operation which was put into service following the reconnaissance visit carried out on 27 and 28 May 1975.

The needs of modernization and improvement of the quality of the service, in themselves very onerous if implemented on the existing funicular system, have also directed the technical performance evaluations towards other new types of systems, such as inclined lifts, which moreover in recent years have increasingly found applications in urban transport areas. The choice to direct the intervention to improve the quality of the service towards the replacement of the previous funicular with two inclined lift systems, was also greatly facilitated by the technical characteristics of the already existing line route, which adapts optimally, for consistency of the slope, straightness and length, with the ordinary characteristics of an inclined elevator system.

Sorrento

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.
