Ropeways, Civil Engineering


The system of ropeways consists of :

(a) a cable suspended between towers, and

(b) cars which move on the cable.

Case with capacity upto 20 passengers is used. The speed is in the range of 5-10 m/sec. The ropes are of stranded steel wires. Spans upto 300 m are possible. The towers are generally made of structural steel. Terminal stations have facilities for waiting passengers, and a cabin for operator. Emergency wireless set between terminal stations is required. Very careful inspection and maintenance on a daily basis is needed. The wheels on which the cable car moves should be greased periodically.
