BP 2013 UFT Presentation Stage3 - Team Stokes

  1. 1. Trinidad Metrocable: A New Approach To Mass Transit Proposal Presentation Group Members Kiran Bholasingh Rochard Duke Govinda Hosein Team Stokes
  2. 2. Introduction The challenge: Develop a single technical innovation to significantly reduce the cost of Passenger Kilometres Travelled (PKT) per capita in Trinidad and Tobago by the year 2030. Our solution: Metrocable Gondola Lifts! Team Stokes - UFT Stage 3 Presentation 2
  3. 3. Metrocable Gondola Lifts • Type of aerial lifts supported and propelled by cables. • Capacity between two (2) to sixteen (16) passengers per cabin. • Travels at constant speeds between two (2) stations.

  4. 4. Implementation of a Metrocable Gondola Lift System in Trinidad • Monocable Detachable Gondolas (MDG) • Can be partially solar powered • Towers have low space requirements • Can achieve speeds up to 40 km/h Image showing a Monocable Detachable Gondola (Source Link: http://fatihbozkaya.com/) Team Stokes - UFT Stage 3 Presentation 4
  5. 5. Implementation of a Metrocable Gondola Lift System in Trinidad Main stations at the following locations: • Port-Of-Spain • San Juan • Curepe • Arima • Sangre Grande • Chaguanas • San Fernando Team Stokes - UFT Stage 3 Presentation Image showing planned routes for implementation 5
  6. 6. Benefits of implementing a Metrocable Gondola Lift System in Trinidad 1. Reduce travel time by approximately 45% 2. Produces low emissions approximately 50% less than buses 3. Approximately 66% cheaper to implement than other forms of mass transit 4. Low noise and high reliability 5. Can aid in the reducing the dependency of natural gas in Trinidad 6. Will provide job opportunities in both the Energy sector and Construction Sector Team Stokes - UFT Stage 3 Presentation 6
  7. 7. Benefits of implementing a Metrocable Gondola Lift System in Trinidad (cont’d) 7. Can cause a reduction in crime rates by providing a much safer means of travel 8. Potential of implementing social facilities at stations Image showing example of a social facility that can be included at stations (Source link: http://www.law.ugent.be/llm/images/stories/G04DB2 0011.jpg) Team Stokes - UFT Stage 3 Presentation 7
