Mürmann – Funicular railway in Luxemburg

5. December 2017

In the frame­work of a major public transport project, a new rail station is currently being constructed in Pfaffenthal, just outside the city of Luxemburg. It will connect with the business center of Kirchberg, which is located some 40 m higher, via two funicular rail­ways. Numerous banks, European institutions and administrative bodies such as the European Court are located here. These cable cars can transport up to 168 pas­sengers at a time by shuttle. By way of eleva­tors at the front of the station, the different lev­els can be easily reached without bar­riers. The elevator shafts are stabilized by m.connect tension and compression rods.
