The Jammu ropeway project will restart its tourism operations after the COVID-19 pandemic situation gets over.
This project is expected to boost the economy of the region and even create employment for locals.
J&K has witnessed significant political changes in the past one year.
Rakesh Bhat, the project manager of Jammu ropeway project said, “Local business such as cab facility, hotels, maintenance will generate employment. It will be allowed for the public once the pandemic situation recedes.”
The ropeway project is divided into two sections: The first from Bahu Fort to Mahamaya Temple, which is 484 meters long and the second section is from Mahamaya Temple to Peer Kho Cave Temple.
“Total cost of this project is Rs. 75 crores which has the capacity for 400 passengers per hour. This project connects three ancient temples of Jammu. This will also boost local tourism. There are facilities for the tourists such as restaurants, fun zones, etc.,” said Bhat.
Mohammed Ramzan, a resident of Jammu said, “We feel really good that a project of this scale has taken shape here. Any such projects are favourable for us as it will act as a propeller for employment. Jammu needed a tourism spot that could cater to both tourism and employment.”
