Loi Am Pagoda to get cable car system
Update: Jul 06, 2017
The Quang Ninh Province’s People’s Committee on Tuesday approved the sites to set up a cable car system and services zone at Loi Am Pagoda.

The proposal to start cable car services at the historical and cultural monument in Dai Yen Commune, Ha Long City, was made by Thu Ha Construction Co Ltd. The project is part of the Ha Long City scheme till 2030, with vision till of 2050, which got the go-ahead from the provincial People’s Committee in October 2013.

The detailed plan for the cable car system will now be sent to the provincial Department of Construction, the People’s Committee, the Ministry of Construction and other concerned organisations for checks.

Many believe that authorities should consider the idea of building the cable car system at the pagoda carefully as it will mar the landscape. Besides, the access road to the pagoda from Highway 18 is close by, no more than one kilometre away, and advantageous.

The northern province already has several cable car systems at the Ngoa Van Pagoda in Dong Trieu Town; at the Yen Tu Pagoda in Uong Bi City; and at the Bai Chay International Tourism Zone in Ha Long City.
