Chisinau rope road, which Chisinau residents themselves do not know about (Moldova)

If I had not rented an apartment in Chisinau near the station of the only cableway in Moldova, I would not even know about its existence. The route of the cableway ran from the New Boyukany district (from Mihai Eminescu Street, now to Nikolai Kostin Street) through the park (now called the Butoyash Forest Park) to Kuybyshev Street (now Kalya Yesilor Street). Surprisingly, most of Chisinau residents do not know about its existence. The fact is that this definitely necessary project of urban public transport has not been functioning for a long time. Being open with pathos in 1990, a year before the collapse of the USSR, the authorities closed it a couple of years later due to the economic crisis, the war in Transnistria and the chaos in the country. According to another version, allegedly a man fell out of the booth, and according to the third version, the cable car was simply not paying off.Having stood idle for about twenty years, finally in 2012 the Chisinau authorities declared their intention not only to restore this cable car, but also to build three more lines. They announced a tender, even chose a contractor, allocated some funds. Six years have passed, the current 2018 has come, and things have not been built there. Take a walk and see?

Chisinau is a city in the hills like Rome. Only the Chisinau hills are quite steep and the elevation changes reach 200-300 meters between different parts of the city. Moldova is considered to be a country of plains, but after walking through the sleeping areas to the west of the historical center you understand that good physical fitness will not hurt. Another feature of the location of the city is the fact that the hillsides are subject to erosion and not everywhere you can build buildings, or even pave the road. After heavy rains, or melting snow in the spring, entire garden plots repeatedly “slid” down and incorrectly designed buildings cracked. This is me to the fact that a cableway with a length of modest 200-500 meters would shorten the route from point A to point B several times, since the road has to be built as a bypass, taking local features into account.
Today, the upper cable car station looks like this. It is conserved, but not abandoned.Downstairs even guard service is on duty, not allowing vandals to destroy an object -

In order to better assess the terrain and infrastructure of the cable car, it is best to go up to the 16th floor of a nearby building. From above it can be clearly seen that the line should have connected this area with another sleeping area below, beyond the forest -
