GRANADA will play home to the world’s longest cable car if the Partido Popular wins next year’s regional elections.

That was the message from the leader of the Partido Popular in Andalucía, Javier Arenas, as the party launched its campaign to control the Junta de Andalucía.

The current PSOE-run Junta has expressed its doubts over the ambitious 19-kilometre cable car project, which could unite Granada with the ski resort in the Sierra Nevada if it is given the go ahead.

Chief among the concerns is the impact the scheme will have on the ecologically sensitive mountain range.

Regional elections in Andalucía will be held in March 2008.

  1. Excellent idea to build the cable car, providing natural habitat can be protected as much as possible.
    Perhaps in the short term this isn’t possible, but once it is finished and the reduction in cars is as expected or better, then this will have a positive effect on both environment and nature, in my view.
    The number of animals killed on the roads would also be cut subsstantially – let alone accidents and fatalities on the roads.
