A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas, and cable propelled transit:
- Dubbed as the largest urban ropeway on the Eurasian continent, the Yenimahalle – Şentepe Teleferik in Ankara (Turkey) is the country’s first public transit cable car. LEITNER Ropeways was responsible for implementing this 4-station, 3.2km system. The cable car is expected to complete testing in the next week and officially open for public consumption.
- A £6 million ($10 million USD) cable car project in Malvern Hills (England) is currently being debated. The system was proposed by High Street Malvern, a group dedicated to revitalizing the town centre. The project is estimated to transport 1,250 passengers daily for 265 days.
- The Emirates Air Lines underwent its annual maintenance last week. IanVisits, a blogger in London, headed down to the site and captured photos of emergency personnel practicing rescue procedures.
- The Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, British Columbia is currently looking to hire 100 employees. The job fair will be held on April 4 and 5 at the Executive Suites Hotel and Resort.
