A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas, and cable propelled transit:
- STL announced that the proposed CPT system in Laval, Quebec, has been postponed. The cable lift was originally supposed to improve connectivity to Place Bell — a sports facility — in the Quartier de l’Agora district. However, since arena plans were modified and will no longer be built in the district, the immediate need to build a CPT line is no longer a priority.
- The Emirates Air Line recently conducted a customer survey and received an approval rating of 93/100.
- A cable car proposal for Mount Roland, located in northern Tasmania, is estimated to cost $13 million. This project should not be confused with the Mount Wellington Cable Car proposal which is happening in Hobart, Tasmania.
