International DOPPELMAYR to finish construction of Georgian ropeway

BAKU, Azerbaijan, Jan. 15

By Tamilla Mammadova – Trend:

Tbilisi City Hall will pay 1.85 million euro or 7.4 million lari to the company DOPPELMAYR to finish construction of the ropeway route between Rustaveli Avenue and Mount Mtatsminda, Trend reports via the State Procurement Agency.

These are not the major expenditures for the construction of the ropeway, as Tbilisi Transport Company has announced another tender of 7.4 million euros.

The tender winner company must complete the ropeway project within the next 15 months.

It seems that 1.85 million euro will be spent merely on engineering works.

The initial agreement on the implantation of the Mtatsminda-Rustaveli Ropeway project was signed in June 2012, but since then its technical parameters changed several times.

Project delay is largely due to the change of ropeway stop. Originally, the ropeway station must be placed near the Radisson Hotel, later in 2016 the decision has changed and the building of the Academy of Sciences has been determined as the ropeway station.
