UrbanOver the city roofs with the all-rounder
The innovative ropeway systems from Doppelmayr/Garaventa offer a host of benefits in the urban environment. They cross residential areas, rivers and existing infrastructure with ease and glide over every traffic hindrance. As well as lending themselves perfectly to integration into urban planning concepts, ropeway solutions offer infinite scope for creativity. Structures and equipment can be individually designed to cater for cultures, local circumstances and customer preferences. Passengers enjoy entirely new perspectives of the cityscape, top comfort and rapid connections while using the safest means of transport in existence.
Barrier-free loading and unloading make ropeways a positive experience for wheelchair users as well as passengers with strollers or bicycles. Environmentally friendly and efficient at the same time, ropeway systems provide an impressive answer to present and future traffic problems, and create added value for any city.
Roughly 50% of the world’s population currently lives in cities and that figure is expected to rise to 70% in less than a generation. As a result of the growing distance between home and the workplace and unregulated urban sprawl, residential structures are becoming ever 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 and CABLE Liners are innovative approaches which can make a valuable contribution towards resolving this challenge.
