A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of urban gondolas, cable cars and cable propelled transit:

Wuppertal Cable Car (Germany)
Studies for an urban gondola in Wuppertal have come back positive. Next, plans for this USD $56 million (EUR 50 million), 2.8km, 3S cable car with a line capacity of 3,500 undergo public scrutiny. An open series of information meetings are planned for June but debates are expected to last for a year. After that, Council will decide whether the project moves forward for planning approvals.

Bandung Cable Car (Indonesia)
Bandung, Indonesia’s third largest city, has serious traffic problems. Project developers are planning an 875m, $11 million urban cable car. Mayor Ridwan Kamil supports the idea and even envisions over 10km of gondolas in the city. Proponents now face the challenge of financing this endeavor.

Yes, Then No to Grand Canyon Aerial Tram (USA)
In a sudden change of events, the new president of the Navajo Nation (America’s largest Native reservation) apparently confirmed plans for an aerial tram yesterday only to oppose it today. If the system if built, it will be part of a massive $1 billion development plan which will add hotels, stores, and various amenities to the Grand Canyon site.
