Jammu: Tourists and pilgrims will have another attraction in Jammu, as the Bahu Fort-Mahamaya-Peerkho Cable Car Project is all set for the rollout by July. The authorities will conduct a trial run from Bahu Fort to Mahamaya Park within a few days.
STATE TIMES visited Mahamaya and found that the work is going on in full swing and the officials are working hard to fulfill the commitment to complete both the sections by July.
The first section of the project from Bahu Fort to Mahamaya Park is almost complete and the trial run will be made anytime this very week.
The 1.57-km cable car project has two stretches – first from Bahu Fort to Mahamaya Park, which is 447-m-long, and the second is from Mahamaya to Peerkho over the Tawi River and its total length is 1,118 m. The first section, which was scheduled to be operational by the end of March, has been delayed by few days due to delay in the import of some parts.
The critical components of the cable car are being procured from Turkey, Switzerland, Austria and Germany.
The project will give a boost to the tourism industry of the Jammu region and people will spend more time in Jammu during their visit to the Vaishno Devi shrine, Amarnath Shrine, Patnitop and other tourist destinations.
The cable car project is aimed at connecting heritage sites across the city. The project is being set up to connect heritage sites of Bahu Fort, Bagh-e-Bahu Garden , Mahamaya Temple and Peerkho Temple.
