Public inquiry slams “half baked” Oisans cable car link

A public inquiry into the Oisans development plan and the proposed Alpe d’Huez to les Deux Alpes cable car link has severely criticised the project. The inquiry said the project was “short term” and didn’t take into sufficient account financial as well as environmental concerns.

On the positive side the inquiry noted that:

but wondered if even these positive aspects justify the investment.

However the report was damming with a shopping list of criticisms

Does this finally bury this long running saga? Not yet, according to local politicians but it should be noted that the French government also has reservations about the link.
