June 28, 2022 – The ropeway to be built between Dehradun and Mussoorie finally gets its approval in the cabinet meeting, giving relief in the bylaws of construction, permission was given to build the terminal up to the prescribed height.
Actually, the construction of the ropeway between Dehradun and Mussoorie has been given permission from the government level. Due to the height and length of the ropeway, tall terminals have to be built in it. But according to the bylaws, the terminal cannot be constructed at such a height.
Due to this, the construction of the ropeway was getting delayed. Giving information about the cabinet meeting, Chief Secretary Dr. SS Sandhu said that the relaxation in the bylaws has been approved in the meeting. After this, terminals of fixed height can be made for the ropeway.

The proposed ropeway from Dehradun to Mussoorie will be the second largest ropeway in Asia. The length of the ropeway will be 5.5 km. Which is just a hundred meters less than the length of 5.7 km of Hong Kong’s Gongping ropeway. With the construction of this ropeway, you will reach Mussoorie from Doon in just 15-18 minutes. Not only this will save time but it will also help in reducing traffic and pollution in the valley.
