Salt River Arson attack costs Metrorail R60m

The Public Transport Voice has condemned the acts of violence and arson attack at the Salt River train depot on Sunday.

PTV’s Zingisani Nkanjeni said we cannot accept that these acts are treated as mere vandalism any more as this is an attack on public property. 

Nkanjeni said it would take from six months to a year for the damaged coaches to be returned to operation, and that the replacement costs were “escalating beyond Prasa’s control.

Nkanjeni said the money would be better spent on improving services and upgrading assets.

Nkanjeni said we want to apologise to the people of Cape Town, because at the end of the day, it’s the commuters who are affected.

 “The thousands of commuters that rely on public transport daily cannot continue to be held ransom by the actions of a few criminals who have a brazen disregard for the law and the needs of others, particularly during this matric examination period Nkanjeni added.
