Urban cable car concession in Guatemala
The bases for the concession of the public transport system by aerial cable, type cable car, which will connect the municipalities of Guatemala and Mixco, were published.
The proposed new system will travel on national assets of common public use, without reducing lanes on the Roosevelt Roadway and will promote intermodal connectivity with bicycle paths and different types of transport, such as Transmetro mass transit, extra-urban buses in the western region, the future MetroRiel and Metro East-West, among other economic, social and environmental benefits.
The project will be executed as a system that, in its Phase I, consists of the following:
- Axis I: Clover – Montúfar, with an estimated distance of 2.1 km
- Axis II: Clover – Molino de las Flores, with an estimated distance of 6.8 km
- Central West: The Western Transfer Center should be located in the municipality of Mixco or at the beginning of the limit of the municipality of Guatemala.
- Transformation of 20,000 square meters of public space in the municipalities of Guatemala and Mixco, within the area of influence of the AeroMetro System.
