New Cable Car For St Moritz (21-Sep-08)

St Moritz, Switzerland, September 21, 2008 - Visitors to St Moritz will be welcomed by a new cable car

Visitors to St Moritz will be welcomed by a new cable car operating at Corvatsach this winter.

The new lift, which will follow the same route as the lift it replaces, has larger cabins each capable of holding 100 people, rather than the 80 person capacity of the old lift. This greater capacity and other efficiency improvements means that passenger capacity on the route will increase by 30%, greatly increasing passenger comfort. 

As part of the reconstruction project both the valley and mountain stations of the lift have been redesigned to a more attractive architectural design. The new lift can carry 1,200 people per hour over its 1,660m length at a speed of 10 metres per second.  The total cost of the project is 13 million Swiss francs.
