Consortium proposes to build €52m cable car in Dublin

A private consortium is proposing to develop a €52m cable car service along the Liffey quays in Dublin.

The cars would transport sightseers 80 metres above the river from the Guinness Brewery near Heuston Station to a terminal at Spencer Dock.

Each of the four cable cars would transport 25 people on a 20-minute trip and tickets are expected to cost €15 each.

The project would involve erecting four giant steel towers, two of them significantly higher than Liberty Hall, along the three-kilometre route.
