First Look: Teleférico de Puebla

Post by Gondola Project

A new video of the Teleférico de Puebla undergoing its testing phase has surfaced online.

According to local newspapers, the ropeway will finally open for passenger use in mid-December after a lengthy delay. If I’m reading Google Translate accurately, it appears that the project faced a number of substantial setbacks when it was first announced back in 2011.

The alignment was redrawn in 2013 because the initial route was appealed to the the federal government by heritage groups. As a result, the ropeway was truncated to 600m from 2000m. The current alignment has two stations and transports riders from Zaragoza to the Exhibition Center.

BMF is the company responsible for manufacturing this aerial tram system (two 35-person cabins).

Though the system has been reduced in size, its station designs are still eye-catching. The terminals are located in what appear to be ~15-storey buildings and we’re excited to learn whether they add architectural value to the city, upon completion. The design is reminiscent of Barcelona’s Port Vell Aerial Tramway.

We’ll continue to update you on the system. However, if you find any other interesting photos, videos or stats of the aerial tram, please comment below, on facebook.com/gondolaproject or @CUPgondola.
