J-K Guv holds detailed meeting on smart mobility in urban and hilly areas

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik held a detailed meeting here with regard to the implementation of smart mobility in urban and hilly areas through ropeways in the state, an official spokesman said on Sunday. The Governor held the meeting with a team of WAPCOS limited, a Government of India undertaking, headed by chairman cum managing director R K Gupta at the Raj Bhavan Saturday.

The team made a PowerPoint presentation on the occasion and detailed discussions were held on the advantages of putting in place ropeways facilities in the state, the spokesman said. The Governor observed that due to increasing traffic congestion on roads and also to minimise road accidents, the establishment of ropeways as urban transport solutions would prove to be highly beneficial.

The Governor stressed upon the departments concerned to further convene meetings and identify the most feasible areas in the state for establishment of such ropeway projects, the spokesman said. During the meeting, he said the WAPCOS authorities briefed about various advantages of ropeways and said such systems can carry up to 12,000 people per hour and have the highest level of incremental scalability. Similar projects have already been initiated in other states such as Himachal Pradesh.
