A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas and cable propelled transit:
- More details for a cable car in Port-au-Prince, Haiti have surfaced this week. The entire proposed 5 phase urban gondola network is reportedly an ambitious 30km — about 3x longer than today’s largest network — and will cost $200 million. POMA has indicated that international financiers have shown interest and may contribute upwards of $120 million.
- Perhaps hoping to mimic the success of other Malaysian cable cars like the Genting Skyway and Panorama Langkawi, the Pahang State government is now exploring the feasibility of building a gondola system linking Fraser Hills to Raub.
- WiWo Green, a German-based website dedicated to sustainability, gives its take on why and how urban cable cars are now transforming the way people move around in city.
