La Plagne: Bellecote Cable Car to be Rebuilt

7th November 2005, by Chris Gill

Following a fire in August, rebuilding of the Bellecote lift station in La Plagne is well under way.

The station, at an altitude of 3050 metres, was completely destroyed, but the authorities hope to have a new station working by December 2005. The logistics of the task are daunting: a road is being built to get supplies in to the site, while workers will live on the site in temporary accommodation with work carrying on seven days per week.

The first milestone is to get the concrete base laid before the ground freezes, expected in mid-October. Currently, rebuilding is on schedule and the authorities are hopeful that the €4 million project will be completed on time.
