By summer 2012, London will get its first urban cable car. The scheme, initiated and led by Transport for London will be constructed by a group of companies including Doppelmayr.

The cable car for London will connect the Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Victoria Dock and provide a fast and convenient service carrying pedestrians and cyclists at a height of 50 meters across the River Thames. Hailed as the first urban aerial ropeway in the UK, the new link is to be firmly integrated into London’s public transport network.
