Ropeways in cities
According to UN-HABITAT*, approximately 50% of the world's population live in cities, and this figure will increase to 70% in less than a generation. As a result of the growing distance between home and workplace as well as urban sprawl, settlement structures are becoming ever more complex and existing transport infrastructures are increasingly pushing capacity limits.
For this reason, it is essential to find new solutions to eliminate current and future transport problems. Ropeways and Cable Liners can be part of the solution by providing an innovative and attractive approach to public transport.
