Good Grief it's barely had a years worth of service and they want to do a week's worth of maintenance on it?!

Must be something with the lifespan of the cabling.

The wire rope has a life expectancy of about 15 years. It's not uncommon for a major Gondola system to require a week's worth of maintenance.

They may very well be resplicing the rope. That's not uncommon in new systems.


We need time for things to happen.
Well, I suppose a brief interruption in Skyliner service is preferable to a cable breaking unexpectedly... as just happened in Italy:
I have to make sure my wife doesn't see this article or we will never see the inside of the Skyliner again.
