Table Mountain Cableway will be closed for annual maintenance for five (5) weeks this year, from Monday 22 July to Sunday 25 August 2013.

There is a wide range of work that needs to be completed during this extended shut down period, including the complete overhaul of both cabins and the replacement of the direct current (DC) drive to an alternating current (AC) drive.

Table Mountain Cableway’s Technical Manager, Andries de Vries says, “In recent years, all new Cableways are supplied with an AC drive. There has been a steady worldwide migration of Cableway’s with DC drives to change to AC drives. Although not required, we wish to keep abreast of international standards, and have made a decision also to move to an AC drive”.

The Cableway will re-open for business on Monday, 26 August, weather permitting.

The Cableway operates weather permitting.
