According to reports, earlier this month one cabin successfully completed the journey using new cables, with a second cabin expected to undergo testing later this month.

The final phase of testing will begin on September 30th, when each cable car will be filled with 16 tonnes of water, which is the approximate weight of 200 passengers.
