Location: Hradec Králové Region
Realization: 09/2011 - 03/2014

Project characteristics

The joint venture „Snezka“ formed by BAK stavební společnost, a.s. and Italian ropeway technology manufacturer LEITNER AG successfully executed complete reconstruction of Snezka ropeway.

The construction consisted in ropeway technology replacement and reconstruction of all stations. This construction is made by two sections and complemented by other supplementary constructions. The site itself was located in hardly accessible parts of National park KRNAP. The route overcomes the river Upa, Ruzovy potok, the upper part of Ruzovohorske sedlo and it follows the edge of Obri dul up to the highest mountain of the Czech Republic.

The whole ropeway technology was replaced during the reconstruction (an open two-seater was replaced by a four seats cabin) the lower section was prolonged over the Upa river up to the right bank where the new station was raised. The middle station was disassembled and replaced by completely new structure conform to recent trends in architecture. The upper station was partly demolished and re-built and the new sewage system connected tot the city drainage was executed in very harsh mountain weather conditions.
