Communities that have a sense of cooperation do well with the WireBridge. Travellers waiting on either side can pull the rope to hasten the trip of the passengers, helping themselves to shorten the queue as well. Here VillageSolutions' three supervisors Balaram, Prem and Gun show how it is done. (view small | med | large | orig)

The glacier-grey Seti (white) River is no barrier for the magic carpet of the WireBridge. The ride to the middle of the river is slightly downhill, and fast. Passengers, or people on either side, tug on the rope which passes overhead. This moves the carriage easily. (view small | med | large | orig)
