Centre approves ropeway project worth Rs 6 billion over Sach Pass

At an approximate cost of Rs 6 billion, the ropeway project from Bhanodi to Pregara on Killar side in Shimla has been approved by the Union Tribal Affairs Ministry in a bid to improve and provide year-long connectivity to the remote area of Pangi valley.

As reported, the Ropeway and Rapid Transport System Development Corporation of Himachal Pradesh will be posed with the challenge of constructing the 21.4 km project. The initial report for the pilot project was sent to be approved by the Centre in September and will be followed by a detailed project report which is set to be prepared shortly. 

It is estimated that the project will not only bring in connectivity to the inaccessible region but since it is being built over the 14,000 ft Sach Pass, it will be a highly challenging task. Reportedly, the ropeway project could also be mirrored in other parts of India.
