BridgeClimb Sydney acknowledges ‘end of a wonderful era’

BridgeClimb Sydney acknowledges ‘end of a wonderful era’
June 15, 2018

Having today been advised by NSW’s Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) that it had been unsuccessful in its bid to win a new 20 year contract to operate on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, BridgeClimb Sydney has acknowledged its successes since it began operations in 1998.

The world famous experience was a world first, pioneered by BridgeClimb Sydney Chairman and founder Paul Cave.

Since opening on 1st October 1998, BridgeClimb has summited four million Climbers from over 140 countries, turned the Sydney Harbour Bridge from a postcard to a ‘global bucket list’ experience. The Climb is renowned as a world class experience and operation, and has an unblemished safety record, without one serious injury in 20 years.

A statement from BridgeClimb Sydney advised “every aspect of the experience has been carefully crafted and endlessly innovated by BridgeClimb.”

Speaking after the RMS decision, Cave thanked all climbers and customers, and praised the team for their individual achievement in creating a globally renowned tourism experience.

Thanking all of BridgeClimb’s business and tourism agency partners for their support, Cave stated “it has been a privilege for us to make a hero of the Bridge, and of every Climber on every Climb. We will continue to create unforgettable memories until our final Climber.

“Our team have worked tirelessly to deliver the ultimate experience of Sydney. Over 1,500 team members have made a hero of the Bridge, and of every single Climber and visitor since 1998. Every one of our past and present team can hold their heads high on what we have created together. The team and our customers are our immediate priority.”

BridgeClimb also thanked the Sydney Harbour Bridge Workers past and present who maintain the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

BridgeClimb will continue operating the attraction 30th September 2018.
