It is all about cable transport! - After New Nile Bridge, Source of the Nile to get a cable system - A team of German Technicians will carry out a feasibility study at the Source of the Nile to establish the viability and cost of cable car system there.
A cable car is a type of cable transportation used for mass transit where rail cars are hauled by a continuously moving cable running at a constant speed. Individual cars stop and start by releasing and gripping this cable as required. Cable cars are distinct from funiculars, where the cars are permanently attached to the cable, and cable railways, which are similar to funiculars, but where the rail vehicles are attached and detached manually. - Jinja Municipal Council together with the Central Division succeeded in lobbying for the transport system. The system is expected to boost tourism and improve transportation at the source of the Nile. The plan is to have a cable car line run from the Jinja side to the Njeru Side of the Source of the Nile -Several cities worldwide boast of cable cars across rivers like in Koblenz over the Rhine in Germany, Thames in London, and Hong Kong. - With this new cable transport system and the New Nile Bridge Jinja will become a major tourism attraction and a source of pride for Busoga / Ugands - Info and photos courtesy of Jinja City
