Weekly Roundup: Monumental 31 Millionth Visitor Rides Table Mountain Aerial Cableway

Post by gondola-project

  • Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company (TMACC) in South Africa receives its 31 millionth visitor. TMACC is an aerial tram that offers guests a five-minute ride from Cape Town to the top of Table Mountain. The system has been upgraded since it was built in 1929, with the wooden, tin-roofed cabins being swapped out for modernized cabins with rotating floors and space for 65 passengers. The 31 millionth visitor was a woman celebrating her 69th birthday who visited alongside with her husband.
  • Gondola extension was approved in Cetinje, the southern municipality of Montenegro. The current system runs from Kotor to Lovcen National Park. The project will extend the current system to 10,780 meters long, with an added intermediate station in Lovcen and a terminating station at the former capital of Cetinje.  The next steps are to prepare a feasibility study and cost-benefit analysis of the system. Montenegro signed a contract worth 20 million euros (USD 21.7 million) with Novi Volvox and Leitner for the original system.
