• The Rs 206-crore ropeway project aimed at connecting Jabli on the Kalka-Shimla national highway (NH) with Kasauli is stuck at the tendering stage.
  • The Ropeways and Rapid Transport System Development Corporation (RTDC) is executing the project.
  • The 88-km ropeway, which will reduce the journey time from an hour to about 20 minutes, will be an eco-friendly transportation mode. It will have the twin advantages of easing traffic snarls as well as saving fuel to promote cleaner environment.
  • The lower terminal point of the project will be situated at Mohal Bhat ka Gaon (Jabli) on the Parwanoo-Dharampur section of the NH-5. The upper terminal point has been identified near the Public Works Department Circuit House in Kasauli.
  • Tourists were eagerly awaiting the setting up of the ropeway, which is slated to emerge as a major tourist attraction.
