Western Cape Metrorail regional manager, Richard Walker provided an update of the plans to fix the rail problems in the province, while speaking on CapeTalk.
Walker said Cape Metrorail is trying to bring damaged substations back on track.
Including the Nyanga substation which has been offline for a year, because of vandalism.
He said plans are to have the substation operating in full capacity by June 2019.
Walker raised concerns that criminal activities such as cable theft and vandalism would reverse the work being done by Cape Metrorail.
He also said, “We are busy awarding tenders and we have two contractors on site in Bontheuwel and Netreg area.”
“We have further nine projects which are sitting in the adjudication process and hopefully it will be finalised within a month or two,” he added.
A year ago, the acting CEO of Prasa, Cromet Molepo spoke about the plan of action for “proper safety” on the central line after a security official was shot and wounded in Philippi.
This came after services had been suspended for six weeks due to security concerns.
