Mono-cable Gondola Detachable (MGD)

Sollentuna Cable Car Stockholm

Project description

Sollentuna is a rapidly growing municipality in the Swedish province of Stockholm with 75,000 inhabitants. The challenges identified in the city’s master plan are: developing the city center, creating space for sports activities, developing nature reservoirs, meeting climate targets and reducing noise.

A cable car between Häggvik and Väsjön deemed to fit well with the ambitious ideas of the comprehensive master plan and may contribute to a continuous development of the municipality, particularly around Väsjön, Häggvik and around the cable car line itself. Special attention is given to develop a cable car line that is adapted to the urban area and the landscape while providing efficient public transport between Häggvik and Södersätra with intermediate stations at Edsvik/Rudbeck and Väsjön. In doing so, both the availability and use of public transport should be increased.

The envisaged urban cable car would be a Mono-cable Gondola Detachable (MGD) system with a total length of 3.3 km, a capacity of 1.800 pphpd and 5 stations.
