The Harbour SkyLink (HSL) is a state-of-the-art, 3.4km cable car providing greater rapid transit connectivity to The Bays and Western Harbour Super Precinct (TBWHSP)
 
This precinct currently suffers from an immense last-mile problem where travellers must endure long, inconvenient and circuitous journeys to reach their final destinations.
 
 
With five stations - Barangaroo, Pyrmont, Balmain (White Bay Cruise Terminal), White Bay Power Station and Rozelle Bay - not only will access to these formerly isolated sites be enhanced, the HSL can catalyse and expedite sustainable development patterns in TBWHSP.

 

In fact the cable car will provide an integral service to both commuters and tourists alike. Full integration with the local transit network will ensure that passenger usage and convenience is maximised.

 

Further research is needed to fuly study and analyse the benefits of implementing the HSL.

Top Performance and Reliability
 

To ensure the greatest levels of passenger comfort and convenience, plus system reliability, HSL will be built with the world's most advanced cable car technology - 3S or Tricable Detachable Gondola (TDG)

 
As its name implies, 3S systems are designed with three cables - two for support and one for propulsion. Thanks to this configuration, system speeds are enhanced, wind stability is increased, long cable spans are possible and energy efficiency is higher. In turn, passengers enjoy superior levels of service and comfort.

  vehicular accidents (buses and cars)
Improve comfort and convenience of
  travel between Precinct and CBD
Enhance civic engagement and
  involvement
Enhance quality of life
100% barrier-free access
Build local resiliency
 
ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS
No point-source emissions
Cable cars are electrically powered
Decrease use of motorised vehicles
  (cars and buses) means less
  emissions/pollutants released.
  Therefore, improved air quality
Cable cars are highly energy efficient
Encourage sustainable transport
 
 
 
ECONOMIC BENEFITS
Connects to major destinations
Job creation
Attract tourists
Spur (re)development
