The finalisation at both stations works flat out

In calendar week 40/41 the 36 chairs were completed. Starting and braking tests with fully loaded chairs will be carried out during calendar week 42. Adjustment and alignment work on the ropeway technical systems will be completed in calendar week 42, and during the 50-hour testing operation, the necessary safety checks will be carried out. The technical inspection by official inspectors from the cable car authorities will start in calendar week 43, while statutory cable car operating licence negotiations will take place in calendar week 44. Thus, hopefully nothing will block the initial operation at the start of the upcoming winter season.
