Benefits Of Cable Car System, It Can Also Work In Nigeria


No photo description available.Cable car system is a form of transportation in which the vehicle is suspended in the air from a cable. They can move in hilly areas and also help in reducing traffic.  In 2004 the Colombian city of Medellin became the first place in the world to fully integrate cable cars into its existing metro system. Since then, a growing number of urban areas across the globe have begun installing cable car systems of their own, offering a clean, relatively cheap and innovative method of moving people around.
Most urban cable cars hang from a cable above, although some are also pulled by an attachment below.
Cable cars offer other pluses too. They’re quiet, emit no direct air pollution, and in contrast to new railways, tunnels or bridges, are significantly cheaper to build.
Their ability to connect hilly and hard-to-reach areas is winning them recognition. In less economically developed cities that can’t afford light railway systems, they offer a faster and more comfortable method of commuting long distances than buses and can also help reduce traffic. 
Not all urban cable cars have met with resounding success. In Brazil, Rio de Janeiro’s system came in for criticism for the sheer cost of its construction when it was completed in 2012 – around 210m reals, or £44m/$54m in today’s money.
The Rio system was intended to provide a service to marginalised communities in hillside favelas, yet was criticised as being a vanity project built without their consultation – many would have preferred the money spent on improved sanitation and basic public services.
