Chiatura's Crumbling Cable Cars - 07 Oct 2013 
Dating to the Soviet era, Chiatura's public cable cars were built to facilitate the manganese mining industry, which formed the bedrock of the town's economy. Sixty years later, 15 of Chiatura's 21 cable car routes are still running, covering a total length of over 6000 meters, and they are still the quickest and most convenient way of getting around, despite their advanced years.

Cable car control devices are seen inside an operator's booth in the town of Chiatura 
Cable car control devices are seen inside an operator's booth in the town of Chiatura, some 220 km (136 miles) northwest of Tbilisi, September 25, 2013. Dating to the Soviet era, Chiatura's public cable cars were built to facilitate the manganese mining industry, which formed the bedrock of the town's economy. Sixty years later, 15 of Chiatura's 21 cable car routes are still running, covering a total length of over 6000 meters, and they are still the quickest and most convenient way of getting around, despite their advanced years.
