Work on the Faito cableway

Usually the cable cars every 60 years need some works for structural and regulatory adaptation, a deadline that expired in 2012, so to avoid the definitive closure it was necessary to carry out some technical modernization works, adaptation to earthquake standards and removal of architectural barriers.

In the summer of 2016 the cable car got a extraordinary extension from the Ministry and remained open until September but at the deadline did not receive further extensions.

In January 2017, the structural adjustment works began and complications arose during the execution due to the severe deterioration in which the beams and pillars of the two stations lay, therefore it was necessary to resort to a design change with the consequent extension of the authorization procedure.
