A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas, and cable propelled transit:
- Organizers for the 2017 International Garden Show in Berlin have finally found an investor for its cable car. The system will be built entirely with private funds and will take passengers from New Grottkauer Station to Kienberg.
- Ulrich Burchardt, Mayor of Konstanz (Germany), has proposed a CPT system for his city of 80,000. The concept was first publicly announced in late 2013 and looks to connect a car park near Schänzle to the historical city centre.
- The Red Line on La Paz’s cable car network continues to undergo testing. Technicians from Austria arrived several weeks ago to assist with commissioning. The system is scheduled to open in April.
