BridgeClimb Sydney – the End of a Wonderful Era
On 15 June 2018, it was announced by the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) that BridgeClimb Sydney had been unsuccessful in its bid to win a new 20 year contract to operate on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The world famous experience was also a world first, pioneered and brought to government by our Chairman and Founder Paul Cave.
BridgeClimb has summited 4 million Climbers from over 140 countries since opening on 1 October 1998. BridgeClimb 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.
Every aspect of the experience has been carefully crafted and endlessly innovated by BridgeClimb.
Paul thanked all our Climbers and customers, and praised the team for their individual achievement in creating a globally renowned tourism experience. He thanked all of BridgeClimb’s business and tourism agency partners for their support.
He said ‘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.’
He added ‘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 mighty Sydney Harbour Bridge.
For all Customers booked up until 30 September 2018, BridgeClimb will be Climbing as usual. For any customers with Climb bookings for after 30 September 2018, BridgeClimb will be in contact when there is further clarity regarding these bookings.
Paul finished,’ we will not be making any further statements at this time. Our focus is on our customers, our team, and on preserving our brand, equipment and expertise for future opportunities.’
