A concession agreement has been signed between the Department of Tourism of the Karnataka government and Dyanamicx Ropeway Pvt Ltd. for the development of a passenger ropeway at Nandi Hills at a cost of Rs 93.40 crore, an official said on Tuesday.

The much-awaited project with an alignment of approximately 2.93 km will be developed on a Public Private Partnership model. The Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer part of the project will be carried out by Dyanamicx Ropeway Pvt Ltd. with a concession period of 30 years.

Speaking on the occasion, Kapil Mohan, Additional Chief Secretary of the Tourism Department, said, “Nandi Hills is home to some historical sites and heritage monuments, and is also famous for its trekking trails, cycling routes and adventure sports such as para-gliding.

“The fast and environment friendly transportation facility like the ropeway will save time to reach Nandi Hills and will reduce pollution in the area apart from offering scenic aerial views of the surrounding area.

The development of the ropeway will not only improve connectivity but also attract more tourists to the Nandi Hills.”

Revenue and non-revenue generating facilities have been mapped out for the upper and lower stopping points. Areas for the parking of two and four wheelers, rental vehicles, and ATMs have been laid out in the foothills. Additionally, amenities like water stations, toilets, ticket desks, waiting rooms, restaurant with seating, a cafe, and gift shops will also be included in this huge project.

Speaking on the occasion, V. Ram Prasath Manohar, Director, Department of Tourism said, “The passenger ropeway in Nandi Hills is an iconic endeavour in Bengaluru, which is certain to put the area on the international tourism map.

“This project will bring jobs and a source of income to the locals, as well as bring in some revenue for the government. In addition, it will also help to reduce the pollution in the hills and assist us in our mission to promote sustainable tourism.”
