Investigations underway into Elizabeth Quay-Kings Park cable car

From Perth Now,  29th June 2014

A CABLE car linking Kings Park with Elizabeth Quay is in developers’ sights.

Officials from the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority met the operators of Sydney’s Taronga Zoo Sky Safari last year.

One of the few cable car systems in Australia, it is owned by the NSW Government and operated by private company Skyrail-ITM.

MRA chief executive Kieran Kinsella said a cable car is included in the waterfront redevelopment’s master plan but is not part of the current phase of works.

“The MRA is conducting preliminary investigations into the feasibility and viability of establishing a cable car system for Perth, including the economic, technical and environmental considerations,” he said.

Tourism Council of WA chief executive Evan Hall said a cable car would become the quintessential Perth experience, “like climbing the Harbour Bridge, scaling the Eiffel Tower or riding the London Eye”.

Skyrail ITM chief executive Ken Chapman said a Perth cable car had potential, but it had to be part of a wider, integrated tourism project.
