Rome mayor wants work on cable car project to begin by 2021

Funicular line in Rome suburbs has been costed at €110 million.

Rome mayor Virginia Raggi has restated her aim to begin constructing a cable car network in the west of the capital by the end of her administration's term in mid-2021.

The Casalotti-Battistini funicular plan, costed at €110 million, is designed to alleviate traffic congestion between the suburbs of Casolotti and Boccea by connecting commuters to the Battistini metro station.

The proposed four-km line would have seven stations, with a total travel time of just under 18 minutes, and would be capable of transporting up to 3,600 people per hour.

The line would have around 200 cabins, each of which would transport 10 passengers, with two rows of five seats facing each other.
