KINGS OF CONSTRUCTION: HONG KONG CABLE CAR - GRD2346
Kings Of Construction tells the dramatic story of some of the world’s most demanding building projects. These pioneering dreams require ambitious designs, vast amounts of money and nerves of steel as engineers, builders and architects attempt to deliver on time and to budget.
On Hong Kong’s mountainous Lantau Island, a team of experts is building the longest detachable cable car system the world has ever seen. The Nyong Ping 360 will stretch for 5.8 kilometres over the South China Sea and through the mountainous Lantau Country Park before arriving at the feet of the largest sitting Buddha statue in the world. But with the budget soaring and the deadline looming, the fate of this multi-million pound tourist venture is hanging in the balance.
