Over on the Gondola Project there is an interesting titbit about a thing called PalmyLink. What they’re calling an aerial ropeway, but otherwise known in New Zealand as a gondola. Also known as Cable Propelled Technology to others. From the Square along Fitzherbert Avenue, over the Manawatu River and up the hill to the University. Brilliant!!!
I hope it gets built – and extended to the train station and the airport (and the Capital Connection runs more than once a day). And I hope you can put your bike on it. It’ll be the 4th reason why Palmerston North is cool. Being truly clean and green it could be powered by the windfarms.
After all Palmerston North is the south of the North Island’s premier city.
It seems to bypass the Hokowhitu campus though. 😦
