Jammu: The Rs 75 crore Jammu cable car project is set be completed by July this year and the first trial will be held on April 15.
The blue print for this project was first prepared in 1995 and initially the cable car was to take off from Mubarak Mandi, but after the declaration of Mubarak Mandi and Bahu Fort as heritage sites, the project had to be relocated.
The foundation stone for the project was laid on February 24, 2014.
“The project would be completed by July 2018. The committee was also informed that the first trial on the Bahu Fort to Mahamaya stretch will be conducted on April 15”, Managing Director of J&K Cable Car Corporation Limited, (JKCCCL) Shamim Ahmed Wani told PTI.
He said the project will give a boost to the tourism sector in Jammu. PTI
