Few days ago, the update on the continuous development at the World’s Longest Cable Car Project also came forward. The work on the project started in January 2022, and now, it has progressed significantly.

As the country is on its path to becoming the world’s first resilient nation by 2030, the cable car will enhance mobility and promote tourism, directing towards sustainable development of the country.

The cable car, after completion, will offer a wonderful ride of 4.1 miles heading towards Boiling Lake from the Roseau Valley.  The cable car is one of the prestigious projects in Dominica as it will enhance mobility to Boiling Lake, which is the world’s second-largest hot lake.

The convenience of cable cars will offer a comfortable reach to an attraction. As, due to no road connection to the lake, reaching it includes the hiking of 13 km. However, the construction of a cable car will make the hours’ journey turn into just minutes.

Marking its benefits to the nation by economic means, the cable car will be the greatest boon to the Nature Isle of the Caribbean. The significant rise in the tourism sector will give a boost to the economy, stepping towards the overall development of the nation as a whole.
