The Ski Resorts of Serbia has launched a tender for the preparation of the technical documentation for the construction of the Usce – Kalemegdan cable car system.
The project, as announced, will improve the connectivity of the most important points of the city area, across the Sava, primarily between Novi Beograd and the old part of the city. Furthermore, the construction of the cable car system will provide a new mode of passenger transport in the city, as a sub-system of the Belgrade public transport. The plan envisions an altitude difference of around 30-40 m, whereas the horizontal length of the route will be around 1,000 m.
The cable car will have the capacity of 3,000 people an hour, and the plan is for it to transport 10-15 persons at a time, with the cabin also being able to accommodate bicycles and wheelchairs. However, the number of cabins, the speed and the capacity are to be precisely defined in the technical documentation.
The documentation will be prepared in four stages: the first one entails preparatory works and the conceptual designs with alternate options (as well as the preparation of the 3D model of the conceptual design adopted by the procuring party), the second stage relates to the preparation of the preliminary design along with the feasibility study in line with the location requirements, the third stage entails preparation for obtaining a building permit, and the final one focuses on main design.
As announced by Belgrade Mayor Sinisa Mali recently, the construction of the gondola should start by the end of 2017.
