Instead of waiting in traffic jams, the residents of Ankara can now just hop onto a ropeway. Over the course of four stations, the detachable ten-passenger gondola lift Yenimahalle links the district of Şentepe with the center. This way of connecting the district to local public transport significantly eases traffic congestion. The cabins, equipped with seat heating, multimedia information systems and external lighting, offer an impressive view from up to 60 meters above the ground. In building Eurasia’s biggest urban ropeway, LEITNER ropeways is reinforcing its leading role as a manufacturer of ropeways in urban settings.
