Drakensberg cableway: Govt officials to take global research trip, Traveller.News24.com – Traveller 24
Pietermaritzburg – It has been called economically unfeasible.
Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife have condemned it, while the community most affected by it have also rejected it.
But, in a move that could easily set taxpayers back several hundred thousand rands, a team of provincial government officials is set for a global tour to inspect cableways around the world.
The international trip is for research purposes to support the proposed R570 million Drakensberg cableway.
A proposal for a Berg cableway to rival that of Table Mountain in Cape Town was first announced at the KZN Tourism Indaba in May 2012 by Michael Mabuyakhulu, KZN’s Economic Development and Tourism MEC.
