Still a relatively sleepy summer for gondola news, but nonetheless, here’s what’s happening this week:

  • Construction has finally started on London’s Thames Cable Car. Don’t cross your fingers too hard for a 2012 Olympic opening, officials reiterate that it’s not part of the Olympic transport plan.
  • A quick overview of Rio cable car system after being in operation for a month. Great discussion on its successes so far and the implications the system may have on future cable installations in Brazil and abroad.
