A new Mass Passenger Transport (DART) system is being constructed to provide a fast transport link between the existing Luton Parkway Railway Station and Luton Airport, which is due to be in service in 2021.
The MPT system will comprise a cable hauled train system with a dedicated station at Stirling Place, Kimpton Road, providing a direct link to Luton Airport.
RJ Power Connections were engaged to design and install a 4MVA power supply, emanating from the UKPN primary sub-station located at Eaton Green Road and terminating to the new MPT station at Kimpton Road, adjacent to the existing Luton Parkway Railway Station.
This project was a key deliverable on the critical path and was delivered on programme. It involved complex Stakeholder interfaces, which were negotiated through the provision of a Stakeholder Management Plan in order to liaise with Luton Borough Council Highways, London Luton Airport Ltd, UK Power Networks, Affinity Water and the Principal Contractor from the main site, Volker Fitzpatrick Kier
