Construction of Santo Domingo’s cable car begins
Santo Domingo.- The government has started construction of a cable car system dubbed Cable Car Santo Domingo, “to defend and dignify the lives of thousands of people living in La Barquita and its surroundings.”
It said the project URBE began excavations at three key points along the cable car´s projected route, with concrete already poured for the columns at La Nueva Barquita station in Santo Domingo Norte.
URBE also works in other sectors of Greater Santo Domingo, where commuters can board the second Metro line at Eduardo Brito Station.
The work forms part of an ambitious plan to connect historically marginalized barrios to benefit more than 287,000 inhabitants with safe and cheap transport.
Santo Domingo’s cable car will span five kilometers with five stations: Charles de Gaulle, Sabana Perdida, La Nueva Barquita, Los Tres Brazos and Gualey.
Santo Domingo´s cable car is similar to the one in Medellin, Colombia, used by thousands of commuters daily.
