Meghalaya mooted cable cars for Shillong

Shillong, Mar 1 (UNI) Cable cars for the highly congested city of Shillong was on Monday mooted by the Meghalaya government as expansion of existing roads is difficult due to the land tenure system prevalent in the State.
Addressing a workshop on ‘Urban Mobility for Shillong City’ at the State Convention Centre here, Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong hoped that the recommendations made through the extensive and comprehensive study conducted by Dalberg would aid in decongesting Shillong.
“Suggestion for operation of cable cars is highly favorable for the city as land acquisition for construction of roads and flyovers often meet with stiff opposition due to the land tenure system that exists in our State,” he said, adding that the “need of the hour” was to meet short term goals.
