Agricultural material cableways

Draft Ordinance enacting specific construction and operational provisions for agricultural material cableways (Agricultural Material Cableway Ordinance 2018)

The proposed Agricultural Material Cableway Ordinance 2018 is intended to contain more specific provisions on haulage rights and installations, which are laid down in the Salzburg Rural Roads and Aerial Railways Act 1970 [S-GSG] as part of land reform in accordance with Article 12(1)(3) of the Federal Constitution. Only regulations for material cableways that travel over property owned by third parties are included. However, it is not only legal necessity that gives rise to the new regulations. Rapid technical progress in the field of cableway installations since 1962 also necessitates adaptations of agricultural material cableway legislation to current technical standards.
