The new ropeway in Algiers links the Oued Koriche district with the city center. It was built to alleviate road congestion in the city and in addition crosses some very steep slopes. The detachable system provides an impressive transport capacity of 3,000 passengers per hour in each direction and incorporates 72 cabins which can each carry 15 people. The geological conditions posed a particular challenge for construction and consequently the structures were anchored with 30-meter-deep piles.
