Notably, the helicopter has been progressively used by the workers to transport the construction materials from the bottom station to the top station. Last week the government of the United States granted the permit to ABL Holdings- a constructing company of cable car to allow the use of helicopters for this purpose.

The advancement has made it easier for the workers to lift the materials at the top station and further paced up the construction work. At the top station, the trail work was completed last week, resulting in the digging of the LSC 18 tower foundation.

Jaime, an Aerodrome expert from Mexico from the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority recently inspected the construction site of the helipad for the helicopter at the top station. The team expressed pleasure and said that the progress on the site has been showing significant advancements.

The landing of the helicopter has enhanced the capabilities of the workers as they are getting goods, materials, and other equipment quickly and conveniently. It has further bolstered the pace of the construction of the project.

Notably, this is the first time a helicopter has been used by the workers in Dominica in this capacity for the pouring and lifting of the material from bottom to top.
