Cable car operations at the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company (TMACC) will close for two weeks in July to allow for annual maintenance work to be carried out. Cable cars will not be operational between July 24 and August 7.
“The safety and comfort of our visitors are very important to us. Our annual maintenance periods allow us to make important updates and upgrades to all aspects of our business and operations so that we can offer visitors an even better and more enjoyable experience by the time we reopen,” said TMACC MD, Wahida Parker.
Operations closed for six weeks in the middle of 2022 to allow for major maintenance work. The required maintenance work this time is less intense and only requires two weeks of closure.
“Whether it is a long or a short closure, our priority is always the safety and comfort of our visitors and our staff members. We conform to the best safety standards and our annual closures help us to check that we’re meeting these requirements,” said Parker.
She added that they were aware that the closure would take place while the Netball World Cup was being hosted in Cape Town and while European holidaymakers would be arriving.
The food and beverage options and shops at the lower cableway station will not be operational during the shutdown. However, hikers and climbers will still be able to enjoy the various hiking routes during this time.
“If you celebrate your birthday during this shutdown period and you want to use your free birthday ticket, don’t worry. Anyone celebrating their birthday in the months of July and August will still be able to qualify for a free ride in September. This means you have more time to celebrate your special day with us,” concluded Parker.
