New Delhi, November 5

Reiterating his commitment to promoting pollution-free and cost-effective transport innovations, Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said ropeways, cable cars and funicular railways could be useful means of transport for hilly and difficult terrains and as last mile connectivity options in congested cities.

He said these transport options would also be useful for tier two cities and hoped these would motivate people to shift from personal to public transport.

Gadkari was speaking today at the MoU signing between WAPCOS and Doppelmayr for providing end-to-end solutions for passenger ropeway projects.

The MoU includes the entire gamut of preparing feasibility studies, detailed project reports, construction, equipment supply, operation and maintenance, etc.
