Cable Car will not be sold

Media Release
19 August 1999

Cable Car will not be sold

Wellington Alive and Labour City Councillors have decided not to pursue the proposed sale of the Wellington Cable Car but want the well-loved Wellington icon's operators to think outside the square.

The proposed sale raises complex Town Belt, Reserve Land and other issues that would make any deal unworkable.

"The Cable Car will not be sold - we've put the idea in the 'too hard' basket," says Mayor Mark Blumsky.

"But proposing the sale has been an interesting exercise. We've had good offers from several operators all of who had amazing ideas about how to improve the service and add value to the Cable Car.

"The Cable Car is a great asset to Wellington but I think it could be even better. We've now seen some new ideas and I'm going to ask the Wellington Cable Car Company to come up with some innovative ways to add even further value to the service."
