A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas, and cable propelled transit:

  • A massive 10km cable car system was proposed this week in Chiang Mai, Thailand by the Pinkanakorn Development Agency — a public entity created this year to enhance tourism and quality of life for area residents. The system is estimated to cost 2 billion Thai baht (USD $62 million) and will connect several destinations including a night safari, Royal Park Ratchaphruek  and the Doi Suthep-Doi Pui National Park.
