Non-destructive testing is the only means for assessment of haulage ropes in terms of local faults (LF) and loss in metallic area (LMA). In a monocable ropeway, usually the cabins for passengers are connected through automatic grips or fixed grips with the haulage rope. In the present study, the monocable ropeway is so designed and utilised that there are two cabins for passengers in zigback arrangement, ie one going upwards to the UTP (upper terminal point) and simultaneously the other moving downwards to the LTP (lower terminal point). This paper evaluates and monitors the condition of a 6X19 Seale haulage rope in a monocable zigback passenger ropeway by a non-destructive assessment method.
