Cable car in Gothenburg
Västtrafik does not longer participate in the project working on a future cable car in Gothenburg.
Since 2016, the city of Gothenburg and Västtrafik have been commissioned to explore the possibilities of building a cable car between Järntorget and Wieselgrensplatsen.
During the spring of 2019, we made a report which showed that it would take longer time to build the cable car and be significantly more expensive than expected in the original plan.
The politicians in the region of Västra Götaland decided that Västtrafik should not continue to work with the project. The city of Gothenburg is now examining how to reduce the costs of the cableway. At the same time, Västtrafik has been commissioned to find alternative solutions for more public transport in the city.
