2010-03-12 00:00

THE Moses Mabhida stadium sky car, which broke down on Monday, is back on track.

The sky car, which takes visitors to the top of the 106-metre arch, came to a grinding halt on Monday, leaving several people stranded on the viewing platform.

Technicians were called in and spent an hour working on the car.

Some have expressed concern about the safety of the sky car, but the stadium’s marketing and communications manager, Lara McLeod, said: “The sky car is absolutely fine and has been running smoothly since Monday. We have taken more than 1 000 visitors to the viewing deck since then,” she added.— WR.
