Chongqing to re­build pas­sen­ger ca­ble­way

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - PAGE TWO -

A ca­ble­way will be re­built across the Jial­ing River in Chongqing to boost tourism, its op­er­a­tor an­nounced on Saturday. Con­struc­tion will start next year and fin­ish in 2019, bring­ing back scenes from when ca­ble cars moved across the river, said the Chongqing Pas­sen­ger Ca­ble­way Corp. The com­pany op­er­ated a ca­ble car sys­tem from 1982 to 2011. It was China’s first ur­ban trans­port fa­cil­ity of its kind, de­signed to suit the ter­rain of the moun­tain­ous city. The ca­ble­way was sus­pended in March 2011 as its op­er­a­tion af­fected the con­struc­tion of a bridge and light rail project.
