Feasibility Study for Caticlan – Boracay Aerial Ropeway Transit

Feasibility Study for Caticlan – Boracay Aerial Ropeway Transit

Project Description

Boracay is a small island in the municipality of Malay, Province of Aklan. It is one of the world’s top tourist destinations thanks to its fine white sand beaches, varied leisure activities, and pulsating night life.

The Caticlan – Boracay Aerial Ropeway Project is a top-supported cable propelled transit system that will connect Caticlan (mainland) to the island of Boracay crossing the Tabon Strait.  It is a modern, reliable and high-quality transportation system foreseen to move people in and out of Boracay Island (alongside the existing water-based modes of transport) at approximately 554 passengers per hour per direction (pphpd) during its opening year, and 1,250 pphpd at ultimate capacity.

The study was prepared by SYSTRA Philippines to accomplish the following:

  • Identify existing site conditions, possible alignment, alignment issues and technical restrictions;
  • Determine transport demand requirements and select the most appropriate technology;
  • Prepare preliminary design of the project;
  • Establish the required capital investment based on the identified project scope;
  • Define the proposed project framework;
  • Determine the project’s technical, legal and financial viability and,
  • Assess the project’s environmental impacts.
