Funicular Update 20 June 2019

June 20th, 2019.


HIE has received the detailed review of concept design solutions and options for the funicular infrastructure from specialist engineers COWI.  In line with best practice for complex engineering projects COWI’s initial structural appraisal and the concept design are subject to peer review by Mott MacDonald, which remains ongoing. 

HIE continues to work with the Scottish Government to determine the best options for the future of the funicular. The funicular is a considerable asset and, provided repairs are achievable and affordable, it will have a future role in enabling all-season access to the mountain.  We appreciate the strong public interest in this work and plan to publish information on COWI’s key findings in due course.
