LEITNER ropeways launches a spectacular major project in Turkey

February 2014 - The Uludağ mountain range in the north-west of Turkey is a popular vacation destination. In summer it attracts visitors to the national park, while in winter it is home to one of Turkey’s largest ski resorts. Until a few months ago, the trip from the city of Bursa was a laborious affair, relying on a 50-year-old ropeway followed by a bus or taxi ride. The city of Bursa commissioned LEITNER ropeways to install the longest monocable gondola lift in the world, which has now made the journey considerably faster and much more comfortable.
