After reconstruction works began last year in October, the Tbilisi Statement University Ropeway is on the verge of reopening. First built in 1983 to soar across the Vere River gorge and link the university dormitories to the Bagebi neighbourhood, the system fell into disuse in the 90s and was finally abandoned in 2004.

Once the system opens for passenger service, the aerial tram will be Tbilisi’s fourth operational ropeway. The privately built system is expected to improve transport options for residents currently housed in the dormitories.
