Table Mountain Cableway will be closed for annual maintenance from 25th July 2005 until 7th August 2005. The Cableway will re-open for business, weather permitting, at 08h30 on Monday 8th August 2005.
Says John Harrison, MD of Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company: “The maintenance this year involves a complete heel and haul cable, or as is technically correct, rope change. The new rope is imported from Switzerland and supplied and installed by specialist Cableway rope manufacturers.”
The Cableway is celebrating its 75th anniversary year having taken over 16 million passengers to the top of Table Mountain since the company opened in October 1929.
