Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) has apologised for the delays experienced at the Cape Point entrance gate and says it will implement a short to medium-term plan to address the issue.
This comes after both locals and tourists lamented the long queues outside the popular sightseeing spot.
A disgruntled CapeTalk listener claims over 100 vehicles were backed up at the entrance way in a line to pay the visitor fares with only two attendants on duty.
Probably a two hour wait with two people manning the till...This ridiculous situation blocks the road from Smitswinkel to Scarborough. There is just no planning - wake up TMNP.— Stuart, CapeTalk caller
According to TMNP's Justine Buchman, the increased visitor numbers over the past year have prompted them to build an additional access lane and admissions office which will be completed by the winter.
That will help improve the medium term access and in the short term an additional three admissions officers will rove the queues before people get to the gate.— Justine Buchman, TMNP Senior Section Ranger
