Inauguration of the Toulouse cable car,

A great success for Téléo!

Téléo, the longest urban cable car in France and Europe, was inaugurated in Toulouse on Friday, May 13, in the presence of the mayor and elected officials of the region.

 

The 3S urban cable car, designed and built by POMA, takes to the skies for 3 kilometers in remarkable silence, to offer a fast and eco-responsible mobility solution for the southern arc of the Toulouse metropolis.

 

On the weekend of its opening, 60,000 Toulouse residents came to be among the first to take an exceptional trip over the pink city and the Garonne.

A cable car

VERY EXPECTED

Tisséo, the Greater Toulouse public transport authority, chose the POMA Group to provide an innovative and sustainable mobility solution to meet the needs of the southern part of the city. Despite the project being disrupted by the global pandemic, Téléo's cable cars will be taking off this friday 13 may. Drawing on its unrivalled know-how, POMA is proud to have led the design and implementation of this pivotal project involving several local stakeholders. Téléo is a clean, energy-efficient and extraordinarily silent mode of transport. It blends in with its environment, reducing road traffic and related nuisances.

 

The world leader in cable transportation, POMA, is thus developing its range of urban aerial tramways in France, after many successful projects worldwide.

Connection of

3 MAJOR AREAS OF ACTIVITY

Téléo aims to improve access to important facilities in the southern part of the Greater Toulouse area where several major activity hubs are located: Paul Sabatier University (30,000 students), Rangueil Hospital (200,000 medical consultations annually) and the Oncopole area (over 10,000 jobs).

 

The 2.7 kilometre-long route, comprising 3 stations in an elegant and understated architectural style, crosses over the Garonne river and connects to the existing transport system. As part of an intermodal infrastructure, Téléo will be supplemented on the east and west by express bus lines. A new 500-place park-and-ride car park was created near the Oncopole to promote optimum multi-mode transport.

 

Téléo cable cars run at a frequency of one every one-and-a-half minutes during rush hours, operating from 5.15 am to 12.30 am. 8,000 passengers per day are expected on the line.

A tailor-made response

TO THE CHALLENGES OF URBAN MOBILITY

Only 5 pylons to cross the 3 km route: the POMA urban cable car with 3S technology is also distinguished by its minimal land use. The integrity of the natural zones is preserved, since they will only be overflown. Téléo is also distinguished by its acoustic performances, its unique electric motorization is installed in the Paul Sabatier University station, and equipped with specific acoustic occultations.

 

The spacious 34-seat Symphony 3S cabins, designed by Pininfarina, offer a high level of travel comfort, while guaranteeing optimal accessibility for all passengers. A space is reserved for people with reduced mobility, whose access is facilitated by large sliding doors. Cyclists and their bikes are also welcome on board. In addition, each cabin is equipped with the same on-board equipment – dynamic information screens, audio announcements and a video protection system – as on the entire Toulouse public transport network.

 

As part of a 20-year maintenance contract, POMA works with Tisseo Voyageurs and Altiservice. Their additional expertise ensures Téléo's optimum availability and safety.

To remember:

The Téléo line is 3 kilometers long and connects Paul Sabatier University and the Oncopole in just 10 minutes, flying over the Garonne River. The first 3S urban cable car in France is a fast and reliable way to get around the Toulouse public transport network.

 

With Téléo, the city of Toulouse is committed to offering city dwellers an ever cleaner and more sustainable means of transportation. With 8,000 passengers expected per day, the Toulouse cable car will allow for the fluidity of traffic on the ground, thus reducing CO2 emissions.

 

Perfectly interconnected with the city’s transport network and designed to integrate optimally into its environment, France’s longest urban cable car is a technological jewel with multiple assets and a model of sustainable mobility for cities in France and around the world.

Next steps

OF THE PROJECT

At the beginning of June, assisted by a drone, the teams will unwind the first cable between the towers. An unprecedented operation in our profession that our COMAG technicians master perfectly. Indeed, they have recently carried out the same intervention in the future Toulouse urban cable car project.

 

After the splicing that will complete the unwinding process, cabins can finally be hung on the cable, thereby giving to the locals an accurate idea of the final appearance of the future urban mobility system. Besides the system's technical and safety adjustments, the coming months will mainly be focused on the development of the areas around the stations. Constructions of park-and-ride facilities at Bancoul and Bois de Nèfles stations are planned as well as pedestrian walkways and the implementation of safety equipments in and around the stations. Le Chaudron bus station will also be redeveloped to fit the new adjustments. Thus, the commissioning of Saint-Denis de La Reunion gondola lift, planned for the second half of 2021, will offer a sustainable and multimodal transport solution to its users.

1ST INDIAN OCEAN’S GONDOLA LIFT

Télécabine urbaine POMA Réunion

Saint-Denis’ 2.68 km-long gondola lift will link Chaudron to Bois de Nèfles districts via Moufia in only 14 minutes.

The “Téléférik” project comes from the local population strong desire, in agreement with the elected representatives, to establish a compact, fast and sustainable means of transport in the city. This very first urban ropeway will make the traffic on the island flows more freely and it will also enables to create an economic dynamic within the districts with new living areas and local shops such as for Chaudron and Bois de Nèfles (right by the new high school).

New success for the POMA • EGIS alliance in Mongolia

POMA will implement the first urban ropeways in Ulaanbaatar

Consortium leader POMA and EGIS have been tasked with a cable transportation project for the city of Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia.
The project is financed by the French Directorate General of the Treasury in the aim of developing mobility in urban environments.

A growing city with

substantial urban obstacles

Mongolia's political and economic capital Ulaanbaatar has experienced rapid population growth due to an influx of nomadic people arriving from the steppe since the early 1990s.

This has resulted in Ulaanbaatar having nearly 1.5 million inhabitants, accounting for nearly half of the country's population, compared with 580,000 in 1990. The transition to a market economy since the 1990s and a succession of harsh winters precipitated the exodus of these low-income households to the edges of Ulaanbaatar.
These suburbs have become commonly known as “Ger districts” due to the multitude of traditional yurts to be found there, known as gers in Mongolia.
These Ger districts house 60% of the capital's inhabitants and cover 90% of its administrative surface area. Until recent times, these settlements had been considered temporary and did not benefit from any urban development programmes or public investment.

Today, offering these districts an access to Ulaanbaatar city centre has become one of Ulaanbaatar city hall's leading priorities.

Cable transport,

the ideal transport solution

In a city featuring major obstacles (notably, the Tuul-Gol river and the Trans-Mongolian Railway), and with a relatively undeveloped transport network, this urban cable car system emerges as the most appropriate solution. With its silent, all-electric and low energy operation, ropeway transport is today an acknowledged and sustainable urban transport mode, capable of addressing specific problems of cities and with the added benefit of being quicker to implement than other forms of transport infrastructure.

The French Directorate General of the Treasury (DG Trésor), which supports French firms in the delivery of structurally transformational, eco-friendly and sustainable projects, therefore decided to finance this urban mobility project developed by the company POMA with the support of EGIS, for the benefit of Ulaanbaatar city council. A financial protocol was signed in May 2020 followed by commercial agreements in June 2020.
The line extending 6 km will have 3 stations, with 122 cable cars running between the Ger districts north of the city and the city centre.
This corridor is in full alignment with the development programmes currently underway, as this Ger district was targeted as a priority for the redevelopment and densification programme financed by the ADB. (Asian Development Bank)

Additional assignments

for both companies

POMA, the leader of the consortium behind the project, will be tasked with the supply and installation of the transport systems including all the vehicles, towers, and equipment of the 3 stations.
EGIS will be responsible for the design and construction of the stations and their foundations under a turnkey arrangement. The low and high voltage power also fall within EGIS' assignments. Finally,
EGIS will be tasked with coordination and combined drawings during design phase and with works supervision during construction.

Cable transport in Ulaanbaator

They talk about it

Our unique know-how will be harnessed to deliver this transformational project for the city of Ulaanbaatar. Our cable transport solution is a perfect fit with the principle of reducing environmental impact and substantially enhancing urban mobility in Ulaanbaatar and its outskirts, in particular the connection of the new district of Bayankhoshuu with the city centre. This is a project that makes sense for the development of this capital city and its suburbs, in the same way as has previously been achieved in Latin America and with our projects currently underway in France, in Toulouse and soon in Grenoble. For this first ropeway line in the country, POMA and our partner EGIS have joined forces to deliver a turnkey project, made in France.

Cable transport in Ulaanbaator

They talk about it

Working on this project is a great honour for EGIS’ teams, who are eager to provide the population with sustainable and environmentally responsible mobility solutions.

We are proud that we can support the teams of the manufacturer POMA on an urban cable transportation project by offering our design
and construction skills for buildings and ancillary systems on a turnkey basis.

Executive Director Rail of EGIS.

Olivier BOUVART
POMA and EGIS

a solid alliance

This new transport project is the fourth joint collaboration for EGIS and POMA.

It demonstrates their shared motivation for the development of this ecological and cost efficient mode of transport, and the complementary strengths of two French industries: a manufacturer and an engineering firm working in concert on domestic projects such as the Grenoble cable car project, but also worldwide.

In 2017, the Namur municipal college awarded the construction of this gondola lift to the POMA, Franki and Labellemontagne consortium. POMA is responsible for the design and construction of the cable car and will support Labellemontagne  for operation and maintenance.

Technologically, this “cable car” is a pulsed gondola lift, with two trains of three cabins each accomodationg  six passengers, which ascends in 3 minutes. This technology is particularly well suited to tourist transport with compact stations and guaranteeing optimal acoustic comfort for both users and residents.
