New Cable Car Lines to Open in Jerusalem in 2015
Israel Hayom is reporting that the Jerusalem municipality has announced plans to build two cable car lines in Jerusalem. One line will connect Dung Gate (the Old City gate closest to the Western Wall) with the Mount of Olives to the east. A second line will connect Dung Gate with the Khan Theater on Hinnom Ridge to the west.
Jerusalem municipal officials said the cable car system will meet the needs of the growing millions of people who visit the Western Wall and the Old City each year and will also benefit the residents of the area. The system will also link up with future additional light rail lines that are planned to be built within the city.
