In the anticipation of an increased number of tourists in the years to come, the mayor of Deva announced that the city will be proud of an ultramodern cable car in Deva. The current cable car was put into operation in 2005 and has a capacity of 16 seats, no longer facing the number of tourists.
The mayor of Deva, Florin Oancea, stated that “The new elevator that will facilitate access to the Deva Fortress will have a capacity of 30 people. The investment will also include the modernization of the inclined transport installation, of the control systems and their functional safety, the modernization of the two stations between which the cable car runs, the arrangement, and functionalization of the waiting area in the pedestrian area at the foot of Cetăţii Hill,
the resizing of the technical rooms in the two stations (departure, arrival) for the new flows of tourists, the modernization of the sanitary groups, the adaptation of the ramps for the people with neuromotor deficiencies all taking into account the standards and norms in force”.
The estimated value of this investment amounts to approximately EUR 3 M, a cost to which is added the VAT rate. The duration of the project implementation is 12 months (two months for the design and 10 months for execution).
