A Cable Car (Gondola) for Perth, Australia?

Post by Steven Dale

Plans for a new Perth Waterfront redevelopment have been released by the State Government with a $440 million (AUD) price tag.

Among the highlights? A gondola. Not too much information, but apparently the $30 million gondola system would connect the foreshore to Kings Park. Decision on whether or not to build the gondola will occur during the 30 months required to rebuild the waterfront.

See if you can spot it (it’s only there for a second):

  1. A pulsed gondola. Very interesting. Of course it's probably a non-detachable system so not very useful, but quite pretty.
  2. @ Erik, I spotted that too. I doubt that it would really be pulsed, it's probably just an artist's rendering to show more than one gondola on the line.
  3. You know somehow you have a dream that you're falling or flying? I had a vivid dream once where I was flying above the Perth CBD and the Swan River. So that video freaked me out just a little bit.
  4. If you want to see a photo of where I think the gondola would be going then I had taken a photo from Kings Park a couple years ago, so I've put them up in a blog post at http://wellingtoncycleways.wordpress.com/2011/02/17/nothing-bicycle-related-perths-king-park-aerial-gondola/
