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

Urban Zoo Cable Car Concept (Halle, Germany)
Halle, a city of 230,000 in the Germany’s Saxony-Anhalt state, invited three ropeway manufacturers to further examine its cable car concept. Plans are preliminary, but the proposal seeks to improve access and rider experience to Bergzoo, the city’s zoological garden on its picturesque Reilsberg Hill.

Winter Resorts Attract Summer Visitors
Ski resorts are no longer closing their doors for summer. Many US ski areas now offer loads of outdoor activities from hiking, ziplining and rope courses to gondola rides, encouraging year-round visits.

Jijel, a city of 130,000 residents in the Algeria’s northeast, may soon have its own urban cable car. A study is underway for a 1.4km system connecting the city of Ayouf to Ville a la Maison de la Culture.
