The much-awaited Jammu ropeway project, aimed at boosting tourism in the state’s winter capital, underwent trial runs in December last year, the officials said.
The 1.66-km-long cable car project has two phases, first from Bahu Fort to Mahamaya Park and second from Mahamaya to Peer Kho over the Tawi River, with a total length of 1,118 meter.
The trial run of the first phase was successfully conducted by the Cable Car Corporation in April last year.
Planned in 1995, the project was to be operated from Bahu Fort to Mubarak Mandi Complex initially but, was modified and relocated later, when the two were declared as protected monuments. PTI
