At Amarabati Park in Digha, there will be a ropeway for the tourists. After inviting Expression of Interest, Pre-Bid Meeting, Presentation and Financial Evaluation, an agency has been identified who will set up this tourist attraction. It will traverse the Lake, rising up to the island in the middle and land on the other side of the lake. Its length is estimated to be 150-200 m. A provisional letter of intent has just been issued.
We also want to have a ropeway parallel to the beach between new Digha and Old Digha. This, however, will require Coastal Zone clearances. Let us see if this is possible.
