SHILLONG, May 8: Tourism Minister Paul Lyngdoh on Wednesday said the tender applications for the Shillong Ropeway Project will be opened by mid-June once the Model Code of Conduct is withdrawn and the work will be awarded to the selected firm by July.
“The expression of interest was floated but a corrigendum is being issued which takes care of certain aspects of the project which were not present in the draft expression of interest,” Lyngdoh said.
The Meghalaya Cabinet had, in September 2022, approved the first passenger ropeway project in the state to be constructed from Lawsohtun to Shillong Peak at a cost Rs 138 crore.
During her visit to the state in January, President Droupadi Murmu had virtually laid the foundation stone for the Shillong Peak Ropeway along with other projects.
