A Don Valley Cable Car System Could Be Built As Soon As 2020
A new alternative to intracity travel.
Picture yourself travelling from the Danforth to Evergreen Brickworks in an enclosed gondola suspended high in the air by a network of cables. Such system could be the next big thing to anticipate in Toronto, with new updates to the Don Valley Cable Car project revealed earlier this month.
Evergreen Brickworks collaborated on this project with Bullwheel, a cable car production company, and they are now moving on to the next stages after a year of crowdsourcing. The team is now in the middle of finalizing proposals to present to investors and the city.
They plan to build a kilometre-long cable car network, with gondolas that would carry up to 10 people. The estimated cost of the entire project totals at around $25 million.
Evergreen Brickworks and Bullwhell have mentioned that they hope to begin construction before 2020, after all of the administrative processes are completed.
