Not giving up: Tugade in talks with mall mogul for cable cars in Manila

 

Who is this mystery man — care to take a guess?

Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade is not quite giving up on his proposal to set up cable cars in the metro as another option to beat the road rush.

Tugade told reporters that he is now in talks with a mall chain owner to develop a cable car network to link Parañaque, Las Piñas, and Alabang.

“I have a plan and I am talking to someone – I have to be careful because I don’t want to tie his hands. He is a businessman who owns malls,” Tugade said. “I already talked to this businessman. I told him that if we should have a transport system, it should not be on the ground, but above.”

Tugade revealed that he is counting on this project to solve the bottlenecks in Sucat, adding that the cable car system can be in place in 1.5 years or less.
