Eritrea is Finalizing Feasibility Study to Build Asmara-Massawa Cableway


Eritrea is finalizing feasibility study to build a new cableway between the capital, Asmara, and the port of Massawa, a senior government spokesman said.

If the project is completed, the cableway will significantly shorten the time to export and import materials to and from the port of Massawa, an observer noted.

The previous Asmara-Massawa cableway, which was built during the Italian occupation in 1938, was the longest three-cable aerial line ever constructed.

Prior to being dismantled by the British in 1941, the cableway had the capacity of transporting 30 tons of material every hour in each direction; and all this from 0 altitude in Massawa to 2326 meters (7,631 feet) above sea level in Asmara.

  2. I have a good memory of the cable,when I was a child, I hope I live to see it again.

  3. Hope to see it soon, infact Eritrea have many natural resources to be exploited..

  4. Eritrea has lost lots of economical income and benefit when UK
    dismantled the cable way. When "....there is a blame, there is a claim..."
    The cable way and other losses as result of foreign colonisation, administration,
    intervention should and would be compensated. It should be an area where Eritreans should
    focus campaigning.

  7. I think you will live to see it because Sunridge Gold's "Asmara Project" is going to be in operation in 2015. So my guess/hunch is, they will try to complete it before the Asmara Project kicks into high gear.


    It's much easier and faster to trace a drawing than to start one from scratch. That's the feeling I get with this project, hence why I feel it can be completed within 3-5 years, since the Italians already mapped out where all the pillars need to be to sustain the cables.

    At 42 km, The Forsby-Koping Cableway in Sweden appears to be the longest in the world but not for long.


    The most intriguing part of this story is the 110 km long Massawa-Asmara will be engineered and built by no one but Eritreans and will dwarf the respectable nordic feat of engineering by two and half fold, becoming the undisputed longest aerial cable transportation system in the world.


    It is this kind of industrious and self reliance mind set that makes Eritrea and Eritreans unique without a doubt. It is astonishing to see the construction of 300 dams, solar panels and now cableways and more, all this by Eritrean brains and muscles, a testament of two decades of perseverance and progress, despite West's syndical proxy wars and illegal sanctions.


    Perhaps this is a sign of the beginning and greater this are yet to come.

  13. Aka Moron,
    Why you have obsession with PIA? You either love or hate him. If it's the latter as I expect you would say. Don't be a hater! Hate make you lose your normal state of mind. Massawa airport is a wise investment that will be needed for future growth of the free zone area and tourism that will make massawa major tourist destination. Some Investment take years to get ROI.

  15. You are the arch enemy of Eritrea and Eritrean people who do not wish good wishes!
    Eritrea is not ruled by one man, we are all ambassadors and government of our country, don't insult 5 million people.Go to hell with your analysis and comments and paste it to your 3A websites.
    Moron is Moron and will never recover from its psyche illness it comes to be worsened now and then and ends up with.......
    Why you hate the Eritrean people is well understood, don't try to be an Eritrean citizenship. I have never seen a collapsed person like you, Eritreans have vision and Eritrea will achieve its final goal whether you wish or not.

  16. Does this economically feasible? it only transport 2 x 30 tone per hour? that mean if we estimate transportation from Masawa to Asmer for one truck load 40 tone around 600 USD that means 450USD for 30 tone. if it work 24 hour in two way (even if it is impossible to work 24 hours effectively) 450USD x 24 X 2 = 21600 USD per day with out operational cost. so this is not good investment.

    Mr Zeragi,
    Wish and reality is not the same. Of course every Eritrean wishes good for his country, but I just not jump with any word that comes from the president. I bet you would come out here and cheer if the man had said we will send a rocket to the moon. You have to know your position before you come out with that wish.
    First of all before you come and insult me go and read some facts about the teleferica that was running from Asmara to Massawa. Facts such as how much it costed to build it, how much electricity did it consume, what is the maintenance cost......
    These are questioned we should discuss before we approve the construction of Teleferica. We don't even have enough electricity to provide to the people.

    That was in 1941, with 1940's technology. To make it simple for your Tigraway brain, in 1940 the maximum speed of a car was 80mph, and today a car can top speed over 250mph. Look at it that way :)

  20. I know this is a feasibility study ,it has to be considered( the cable reconstruction )inorder to justify any expense that occurs in building infrastructure. I am sure other options have been considered like Shortening & Widening the distance between Asmara- Massaua using bridges to 1hr travel time,remodeling and probably re-routing and extending the existing train trucks. Although there is a problem in the order of infrastructure building (eg.Massaua Airport too early) we have to applaud this project. Whether this is the right option or not time will tell.

  21. You see Jack you're right..Eritrea never gets chance to think on issue of compensation, since 1942 was all the time in trouble with several dictators..un, us, eu, au, eth...ect..they never give Her peace..everything at it's own time..maàltu allo..Ajoka

  23. Actually from Aviation point of view Massawa Airport is very efficient. Perfect for shipping fish. If you say it was his idea, then credit to him. BY the way the airport is certified and loved by Lufthansa. Also by China. Why it is not used much is because simply politics. So are you complaining about the cable way, would that make a failure? Coming back to Massawa, can you tell us what makes it failure, what is the shortcoming? Of course beside what you said "....president Issayas's idea..." Looking for your reply saying "Where Is Z Cruise?"

  24. Eritrea is under UN sanction,because of the situation we are in it is impossible to go forward with our ideas, if you are not allowed to have oven,flour,water yeast you can not bake a bread. The same goes with free zone,but when the time comes we are ready to go.

  25. You guys love to dream, plz back your mind to reality.Have you ever questioned your selves whatever happened to Singapore,Freetradezone, Massawa airport, Bisha gold, Asmara-Massawa rail road......etc. How much blood and sweat had we spent and how much does we benefit from it?

  33. I applaud you and i am glad that madote excercises what Eritrea truely upholds in the principle of democracy; that is participatory. Your honost opinion is that the investment is not wise based on cost analysis, since this is a feasibilty study it can go either way. Unlike those that jump the shark you gave unbiased opinion and i respect that. Eritrea will do thats all it needs to do and this shall be accomplished soon, its for Eritrea not for anyone else.

  37. Cruise to the energy matter you bring is a fact, but don't forget, that on the direction from Asmara to Massawa, they might adopt the slope advantage and energy cost almost zero, while for the opposite direction then other alternative energy might be envisaged..

  41. Moron,
    Not everything goes as it's planned. Specially in a situation where is a hostile world that Eritrea has been encountered in day in and out, things can be delayed for indefinite time. If it doesn't come to your mind, Eritrea has been in state of emergency for the last decade. It's been safeguarding the country while building it's independant path.

    It is not a secret Massawa airport costed $40 million to be built from scratch and it is not fully operational yet.
    Question to you is
    How does airport make money?
    If the government is revoking business licenses from investors, scare away potential investors, trying to monopolize all businesses, how do you think the tourism would grow? How do you think the airport would grow? What is the reason to build a new airport that is not been in function for 10 years? Do you know how much it cost to maintaine the airport (specially in environment like Massawa)? Why don't the government invest fraction of the money in rebuilding Asmara airport instead?

    I didn't ask you who you are. I didn't question your Eritrean citizenship , I never said you don't stand with your own feet last not least, I never said I decide on the behalf of Eritrean people. But as Eritrean everything that happens in Eritrea concerns me because it is my land. If I see or feel something is not right, I will say it loudly and proudly it is wrong. It might not be wrong in someone's opinion and that's why civilized people discuss ideas.

    Maybe your few Tigray relatives are in better position, but the majority of Ethiopians are in worse condition. I have many Ethiopian friends from different ethnic groupe and I get first hand information about Ethiopia. My best friend is from Wolega and he travels to Eyjiopia atleast once a year and he can tell you about how his region how they are doing. The same goes in Gonder, Harare, Ogaden.... 1/3 of Ethiopian budget comes from USA and another third from EU. Without this life support, Ethiopia wouldn't survive 1 month.
    Please don't come and lecture me about Ethiopia.

  57. you are sincerely a moron, who pretend to have half a brain hiding behind computer with a fake aviation diploma from the 1970.... if you understand how basic economics works & the market ... then you would know and understand, having just the label Sanction has so many negative consequences.. the fact is that your hatrage has blinded you to a basic logic ... you must know or heard or even read about not just the short term but also long term consequences for filing bankruptcy not just on business but also individuals .... by simply having that label the basic rules of the market will then have many negative consequences... 1 loans will become harder and with more interest, this will direct affect the value of your own currency in a nations case, increase inflation which ever way you try to adjust it, and decrease the availability of hard currency (making it ever harder to import for a developing economy).... furthermore the cost of anything for you will be higher, due to basic rule of this form of market:...scarcity increases the value of any product ..... Moron you have now been spoon fed, a lessen on basic economics 101
