ROPEWAY AS AN URBAN SOLUTION
Roughly 55% of the world’s population live in cities and this figure is expected to rise to 70% in less than a generation. Ropeway solves two main concerns, land limitations and environmental sensitivities. As a result of the growing distance between home and the workplace and urban sprawl, residential structures are becoming even more complex and existing traffic infrastructures are increasingly hitting capacity limits.
This makes it essential to find new solutions to address present and future traffic problems. Ropeways are innovative approaches which can make a valuable contribution in resolving this challenge.
As cities are considering on ways to get people moving again post-COVID – in healthier, more sustainable ways, urban cable cars present a viable option that can be integrated into existing public transport networks, enhancing connectivity while simultaneously helping to create healthier cities by reducing congestion and CO2 emissions.
Our partner, Doppelmayr Cable Car (DCC) has delivered outstanding and successful urban projects and transports thousands of passengers daily all over the world in cities such as in La Paz (Bolivia), Singapore, London (UK), Koblenz (Germany), BA NA Hills (Vietnam), Portland (USA), Medellin (Colombia), Caracas (Venezuela), and Mexico City (Mexico).
