The Table Mountain Cableway will be closed for scheduled annual maintenance from Monday, 23 July until Sunday, 5 August 2018, ensuring the safety of the millions of visitors that flock to the attraction each year.
“Safety and security is paramount to us,” says Cableway managing director, Wahida Parker. “To maintain the highest standards set for cable cars by the Swiss Governing Body for Cableways we will be closing to the public in order to clean the ropes, run slack rope tests and measurement, do break and load testing, and cabin alignment checks.”
The Cableway will also service the main gearbox, generators and backup generators, and do general electronic component changes and control checks. Visitors can also expect to see upgrades to the flooring and seating in the Table Mountain Café.
“We are proud to say that visitors have been putting their trust in us to safely transport them up the mountain for 88 years, and we are committed to continuing to provide a world-class, safe experience,” adds Parker.
South Africans, 18 years and older, who celebrate their birthday within the closure period are entitled to redeem their complimentary Cableway ticket one week prior (16 – 22 July) or one week after (6 – 12 August) the maintenance period.
The 3-for-1 Kidz Season special will also be available before and after the maintenance period, seven days a week until 24 September 2018.
