Šibenik One Step Closer to Cable Car Connecting Fortresses

Total Croatia News

The town of Šibenik has finally published a public tender for the project of the construction of the long-awaited cable car, which is supposed to connect the two Šibenik fortresses, St. Mihovil, St. Ivan and Šubićevac neighborhood. The Šibenik Cable Car project will be chosen from the ones submitted at the tender, and all applicants are required to submit three ideas – with the 3D simulation of the cable car in a historic and current context. Once the best project is chosen, the architect will have to present the entire documentation needed for the location information to build the cable car, Dalmacija Danas writes.

Šibenik Mayor Željko Burić points out that this is just the first step, needed to fully comprehend what the project might mean to the town. Then the alternative transportation, tourist considerations and everything else will be weighed, once the technical details such as the positions of the pillars are known. Mayor Burić said also that the finances for the project are not the biggest problem, but the complexity that the innovation and the laws involved bring to it. The final budget for the project will, of course, depend on the specific project selected through this process. Mayor Burić added that he’s also not giving up on his idea of excalators in the walls of the fortresses, but that a solution needs to be found for those that will follow the guidelines set by the conservators.

The deadline for the submition of the ideas for the Šibenik cable car is on June 17th, at noon. Submition openings will not be public, and those that have applied will be notified of the results as soon as possible. You can find the details of the tender here (unfortunately, only in Croatian).
