Ankara-Yenimahalle cable car project, which is the biggest urban ropeway project in Eurasia, draws attention to the possibilities and advantages of using ropeway in metropolitan cities.
Turkey's capital, Ankara, with an unusual cable car line, one of Ankara's lifeblood Şentepe will connect the district to the Yenimahalle metro station. 10 units will be equipped with 2.400 passenger carrying capacity with 3.204 passenger carrying capacity. Since the ropeway line is on the main transport lines, traffic on the streets will be reduced and the environment will be maintained with less emissions.
The modern and attractive station buildings designed by Primavera Design will be one of the highlights of the facility. Buildings that will be illuminated by special LED lights at night will give the city a new look. For light effects poles, a design developed jointly with the sister company LEITWIND will be used.
