Media Release: Cableway Re-Opens After Annual Maintenance

30 July 2008

The Table Mountain Cableway will re-open (weather permitting) to the public on Monday August 4, after completing its annual maintenance.

The Cableway usually closes for two weeks every year to complete its maintenance, but this year it closed for three weeks and will do so again in 2009. The extra week is in anticipation of finishing additional work in order for the Cableway to remain operational during the weeks of the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

Visitors can take advantage of the Cableway’s special offers such as a free return ticket on your birthday on presentation of a South African ID. However, anyone who celebrated their birthday during our annual maintenance period may redeem this offer one week after our annual maintenance, on presentation of a South African ID.

The family winter special offers two children under 18 years a free return trip if they are accompanied by a full paying adult (valid until September 15, 2008).

The Cableway operates weather permitting. For information call (021) 424 8181 or visit
