“The Mount Wellington Cableway Company (MWCC) is flying Swiss engineers into Hobart to re-examine potential cable car sites, as mystery surrounds an application made by the company to the Hobart City Council.”

Community sources have raised suspicions that the MWCC hope to use the McRobies Fire Trail to access their new preferred base station site, after Carlton United Breweries ruled out the use of their land. Use of the fire trail would require a significant upgrade, and would likely require the destruction of several recently built shared-use tracks within the area, as well as land being acquired from the City of Hobart.
