A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas and cable propelled transit:
- London’s Emirates AirLine announces a June 28th opening. A schedule of controversial fares is also released.
- London blogger Diamond Geezer has an excellent analysis of the Emirates AirLine, it’s speed, and prices. It’s a pretty interesting read though I’m not entirely sure that repeatedly calling the system the “Arabfly Dangleway” is either fair or appropriate. Note: you have to scroll down to his June 19th post.
- Still in England, apparently there was a plan to build an urban gondola in Glasgow, Scotland. Those plans, however, appear to have died before getting any traction.
- Not urban, but still: Debate continues on England’s Cheddar Gorge Cable Car.
