Funicular railway consultancy: Saltburn Cliff Tramway

Funicular Railway ConsultancyClient: Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council
The Saltburn Cliff Tramway is a historic funicular railway located in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorkshire. The award-winning visitor attraction opened in 1884 and connects Saltburn’s upper promenade with the lower promenade and beach. It is the oldest water-balanced funicular railway still in operation in the UK having replaced an earlier vertical hoist built in 1870. The lower ticket office building is a Grade II* listed structure.

Planning Solutions Consulting Limited was commissioned to identify options to enhance the visitor experience and operational performance of the funicular railway. Our work focussed on carrying out a review of the operation, analysing relevant market trends and carrying out a programme of engagement with key stakeholders. We also identified opportunities to enhance the visitor experience and operational performance of the funicular railway and reviewed future governance and delivery options.
