Status: in use

A cable/wire supported lift for goods. Passenger transport is usually not allowed.

Consider using detailed aerialway=* type with a combination of foot=no and/or usage=freight and/or usage=industrial instead of this tagging.

This is an unusual classification among several cable/wire based lifts/transportation types listed under aerialway=*. See also WikiProject Piste Maps.

How to map

Draw a way way along the route of the cable, and set this aerialway=goods tag on this way.

Additional features

Position nodes node at either end of the cable. These nodes might be tagged with aerialway=station

If you know the position you can also map support pylons by positioning nodes node in the middle of the way, with the tag aerialway=pylon.
