CNA -Cable Neige Amenagement - Maitrise D’Oeuvre

Full Text

A French engineering and consulting company specializing in ski resorts and the construction of cable transport systems.

In October 2015, the company was awarded a 145,000 EUR contract by the Jerusalem Development Authority to serve as the main planner for a proposed cable car to the Old City in occupied East Jerusalem. The company was contracted after another French company, Safege, withdrew from the project, citing political considerations.

The cable car project, promoted by the Ministry of Tourism and approved by the Israeli cabinet in May 2017, is designed to strengthen Israeli control over occupied East Jerusalem and to boost settlement tourism, with the final station to be built in a settler operated visitors center in the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan.
