A Cable Car to the Western Wall?

Apparently the mayor of Jerusalem has approved a study to determine the feasibility of a cable car to bring visitors to the Western Wall from the other side of Jerusalem. The idea is to relieve traffic congestion in the Old City, and the car would transport 70 people from the train station near the Hinnom Valley (A) to the Dung Gate (B) in 5 minutes.

  • Do you know what the approximate angle is from the train station to the Western Wall? (degree of elevation, that is.)

  • Boy, would that have terrorist target written all over it!

    Myself, I prefer the Star Trek transporter.

  • Zack - I do not know and don't have a quick way of finding out. I don't think there is a significant difference of elevation; the area of the Western Wall is lower than the train station.
