Uttarakhand govt decides to build ropeway to connect Har ki Paudi and Chandi Devi Temple

Ropeway in Haridwar

Uttarakhand Government has given a green signal to the construction of a ropeway between Har ki Paudi and Chandi Devi Temple in Haridwar. The development is being seen as a game changer for the tourism industry in the state as the government seems to be planning more such development projects including Metro Connectivity. The decision came after a review meeting at the Secretariat last week on the infamous metro project of the Urban Development minister Madan Kaushik and his subordinates.

According to the minister, the metro project will increase connectivity between Dehradun, Haridwar and Rishikesh. Under this, the government is looking to make ropeways and set up a Personalized Rapid Transit System across the three districts that are literally the backbone of tourism in Uttarakhand.

Besides Har ki Paudi to Chandi Devi Temple, the government is planning another ropeway to connect Rishikesh and Neelkanth Shiva Temple. For this, the officials had initially chosen Triveni Ghat, Railway Station and Bus stop as three options for the starting point of the route out out of which Triveni Ghat got finalized in the meeting. The officials have now been asked to prepare a detailed project report on it. 

Kaushik told media that the metro line between Dehradun-Haridwar and Rishikesh was supposed to cross from above the highway and parallel to the rail route. However other possibilities are also being explored about which a meeting will be organized with the Central government representatives to further take a decision. 

Meanwhile, the officials also reviewed arrangements for the Kumbh festival that is to be organized in 2021. The minister said that the officials have been directed to finish construction work by December 1 for which a three-member committee has also been set up. The committee will be responsible for the monitoring of the supply of basic amenities like Electricity, water etc.
