Plan to build cable car linking Labadee with Citadelle Laferriere

Did you know there is a plan in the making to build a cable car line linking Labadie with Citadelle Laferriere? This is part of a tourism improvement plan. Tourists arriving at Labadee via Royal Caribbean cruise will now be able to get to the historic site of Citadelle Laferriere in very safe condition.

This picture seeing here is not an actual picture of the cable car line project between Labadie and Citadelle Laferriere. It is just an idea of what it will look like after completion.

China never withdrew it supports on Haiti since its participation in the UN peacekeeping mission in Haiti following the devastating 2010 earthquake. Although, they left the UN mission in November 2012, but have maintained their presence with financial cooperation and assistance in important Haitian development works. Recently, on September 25, 2015, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the Haitian government and China National Automation Control System Corp (CACS) which would help to construct new buildings for the finance ministry, the tax office and the customs bureau. Furthermore, the Chinese companies will help to improve and expand important arterial roads around the capital city and in the border areas. A cable car will be constructed to link the municipality of Labadie to the archaeological site of Citadelle Laferriere, and the international airport, Toussaint Louverture will be renovated within a few years. These are genuine gesture from China to put Haiti on its path to development. The Citadelle Laferrière or, Citadelle Henry Christophe is a large mountaintop fortress in northern Haiti built between 1805 and 1820 with 365 cannons of varying size, approximately 17 miles (27 km) south of the city of Cap-Haïtien and five miles (8 km) uphill from the town of Milot.
