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

  • Le Havre, a French city of 250,000, is currently studying the feasibility of building a network of urban cable cars. The report is scheduled for completion by the end of this year. Two to three different alignments are now under examination which would link up places such as Jacques-Monod Hospital, the center of Montivilliers, Jenner, and an industrial area. 
  • After seeing the Montjuic Cable Car, Roman Onderka, the mayor of Brno was inspired build an urban cable car in the Czech Republic’s second largest city. The system is proposed to connect the Faculty of Medicine at Bohunice (in the southwest of the city) to the Pisarky tramway (in the northwest of Výstaviště) within 5 minutes. If he is re-elected, he believes the system can be complete in 4 years.
