The largest urban ropeway project in Eurasia is an impressive demonstration of the potential and benefits that the use of ropeways can offer in large cities. In the Turkish capital of Ankara, LEITNER ropeways has installed a gondola ropeway that is exceptional and sets new standards in many respects. It connects the neighborhood of Şentepe to the Yenimahalle metro station and therefore to the city's main artery. The detachable GD10 gondola ropeway with a total of four stations and a length of 3,204 meters has a transport capacity of 2,400 people per hour in both directions. This way of connecting the neighborhood to the public transport system reduces road traffic considerably. In addition, it is more environmentally friendly thanks to significantly lower emissions.
“This new ropeway provides many benefits to the city of Ankara. For inhabitants of Yenimahalle in particular, today is a wonderful day, as traffic on the streets there will soon decrease significantly.”- Melih Gökçek - Mayor of Ankara
