A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of urban gondolas, cable cars and cable propelled transit:
Cheddar Gorge Update (UK)
The proposal for a cable car through Cheddar Gorge in Somerset, England has been in a sort of limbo for a few years. But according to the Somerset Mercury, a financial feasibility is due to be released in February.
Rebirth of a Cable Car? (Malaysia)
The cable car serving Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was discontinued in the 1908s. Despite restoration efforts that began in 2012, it seems that Kuala Lumpur City Hall is still grappling with how to make the cable car a tourist attraction.
Re-Royaled Ski Lift (Switzerland)
Klosters ski resort in Switzerland, a longstanding favourite of the British royal family, has reinstated Prince Charles’ name on two cable cars. The label “Prince of Wales” was removed from its original place on one cable car to make room for sponsor advertising, but lobbying efforts resulted in a redoubled effort to acknowledge the future King of England.
