Luton DART (Direct Air Rail Transit) is a planned automated guided people mover from Luton Airport Parkway station to Luton Airport scheduled to open in 2021.

‘Picture This’ started in 2008 and every year seeks images that show what civil engineering is about. It is not a competition about photography skills - though of course it helps.

The Runner Up picture is of London Gateway Port, Essex “on a bright winter’s morning”. It was taken by Andrew Bowen who receives £100. He was a previous ‘Picture This’ winner in 2014.
