Santo Domingo Cable car construction advances
Santo Domingo.- Nearly all pillars for the cable car that will link the sprawling barrio Gualey with the National District have already been built, as around 300 construction workers and technicians toil throughout the route that will span the Ozama river.
The cable car will transport thousands of commuters per hour from around 20 neighborhoods, home to over 287,000 people, said architect Juan Millet, official of the project dubbed URBE.
Quoted by elcaribe.com.do, the engineers Guarocuya Arzeno and Jhoel Isa said the project is being built under the supervision of Colombian and French technicians.
The URBE will count on 200 cabins of 20 people each and will travel five kilometers in 20 minutes, and will connect with the Eduardo Brito metro station in Gualey, with de Gaulle Av.
They added that once operational the Cable Car sill benefit residents of neighborhoods who’ll save time and money, because with just one fare, they can also ride the Metro.
