After two-year shutdown: Blida-Chréa cable car back in service

ALGERIA: The cable car transportation, connecting the city of Blida to the heights of Chréa, resumed, on Wednesday, service after a shutdown of almost two years, said the province’s director of transport Cherif Idir.

“This cable car, ensuring the link between the city of Blida and the tourist region of Chréa, over nearly 8 km, is back in service following the completion of the maintenance work which consisted in the renewal of its pylons”, indicated to APS, the same official.

The relaunch of this means of cable transport, also, comes following the green light given by the Prime Minister for the resumption of metro and cable car activities, suspended due to the spread of Covid-19, pointed out Mr. Cherif Idir, stressing that the decision to resume the activity, comes after the completion of the technical tests carried out at the end of the maintenance work in order to guarantee the safety of the passengers.

The Algiers Metro company and the Algerian Cable Transport Company (ETAC) inform pessengers that a health protocol has been put in place, in particular, the compulsory wearing of a protective mask with a view to warding off the spread of the pandemic.
