2006 – ‘Suas’, Dublin


Hair-brained idea for an “iconic” tourist attraction that would run from Dublin’s Docklands west to Heuston Station – destroying views of some of Gandon’s iconic Dublin works. Developer Barry Boland first unveiled his vision for an €80m cable car in 2006.

It was dubbed ‘Suas’ but the idea thankfully never took off. The proposal for four steel towers – two of which are 80 metres high that would be used to hoist cable cars that would run the length of the Quays.
