The meeting will cover key engineering aspects (permanent and temporary works) of the new Luton DART (Direct Air-Rail Transit) – a project to transport travellers from Luton Airport Parkway station to the terminal of London Luton Airport in under four minutes.

The project provides a step-change in how passengers get to and from the airport and is being funded and delivered by Luton Council’s airport company, London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL).

Scheduled to open in 2022, passengers will be able to travel between St Pancras and London Luton Airport in just 30 minutes using the fastest trains and seamless Luton DART transfer.

The scheme comprises a double-shuttle, fully automated people-mover, based on the latest system technology and design innovation, capable of operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The cable-driven system is energy efficient and environmentally friendly.

The route also caters for a 50m level change that involves two new stations a 300m long viaduct, a landmark bridge and 360m long tunnels leading to the sub surface station adjacent to the Airport Terminal.

The project is being delivered by Volkerfitzpatrick / KIER JV with Tony Gee and Partners leading a design team including RPS, Hewson & Coffey.
