Lori Governor Artur Nalbandyan said the respective planning is expected to be completed within two months, construction will get underway between July and August, and the ropeway construction is planned to be completed within nine months.
In his words, the plan to construct this cable car system was transferred from Vanadzor town to Shahumyan because the duration of snow cover is longer in Shahumyan than in Vanadzor, and the path in Shahumyan will be 8 kilometers, whereas solely about 4 kilometers were planned in Vanadzor.
The aerial tram will transport 2,400 people in one hour, and it will be longest sky tram in the region.
A total of 150 hectares of land will be allocated for the construction of this cable car, as well as two hotels and two restaurants.
The entire project will be completed by 2020.
