Parliament approves Gautrain project

Parliament has given its official approval of the controversial Gautrain Rapid Rail link, after considering a detailed presentation on the project. The merits of the project,which is estimated to cost at least 20-billion rands, was recently questioned by parliament’s transport portfolio committee, which argued that it will be too expensive and would create a dependency on foreign parts. However, government spokesperson Joel Netshitenzhe says project has the full support of government, but agrees that more needs to be done to integrate the rail link with existing rail transport networks in the province.
