This new ropeway will allow tourists to get from Damlatas Cave to the top of Alanya Castle. The construction works started with the down station, where the first poles to which the ropeway will be attached were installed.
The municipal administration allocated 20 million liras from the State budget for implementation of this project. It is planned to finish the construction works by May of the following year. According to Alanya mayor Adem Murat Yücel, they will do their best to construct the ropeway as soon as possible.
The new project will allow to unclog the road that goes to the Balcony of Cleopatra and is crowded with cars and tourist buses. The ropeway is aimed to help save the cultural heritage of the town.
