Ropeway in Varanasi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lay the foundation stone for India's first public transport ropeway in his parliamentary constituency, Varanasi, on March 24. The service will be operational from the Cantt Railway Station (Varanasi Junction) to the Godaulia intersection. Abhishek Goyal, vice-president, Varanasi Development Authority (VDA), said, "In the first phase, the country's first public transport ropeway will operate from Cantt to Godaulia in Kashi. When the project takes shape, pilgrims will be able to board the ropeway to reach Godaulia, Kashi Vishwanath Temple and Dashashwamedh Ghat. Through this service, they would not have to face traffic on the roads."
