Emirates Air Line, London Cable Car Change this

Description Change this

The London Cable Car across the River Thames is the first of its kind built in the UK, mark-ing it as one of the most exciting additions to London’s infrastructure in recent years. The Air Line's sculpted towers rise high above the Thames, formed from a series of steel rib-bons and arranged as a tapering spiral. The ribbons are held in place by a helical tie that
corkscrews up the inside of the structure. The effect is of lightness and movement, with the loose curves of the central helix providing the necessary stiffness with the least amount of steel.

The crossing provides a valuable and much needed link between the two major landmark venues of the O2 Arena and the ExCeL Exhibition and Conference Centre. Both venues, sited either side of the river, have been the principal catalysts to the major regeneration and transformation of their respective localities.

This physical link provides a direct connection as well as a dramatic and memorable
experience for residents and visitors, and supports the Mayor’s vision to transform this area into a bustling metropolitan quarter with new businesses, homes and job
opportunities.
