TRAINS IN LANGA HAVE STARTED OPERATING AFTER SUSPENSION SINCE NOVEMBER 2019

Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) chairperson Leonard Ramatlakane welcomed rail commuters at the resumption of the service between Cape Town and Langa on Monday. The passageway that goes through Mutual station has been suspended since November 2019, with Prasa teaming up with the provincial department of transport and public works (DTPW) and the City to reestablish the rail organization.

Prasa's move follows in the wake of Transport MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela's engagement with around 7 500 illegal occupiers, who had put shacks on top of train lines, pleading with them to calmly move from Prasa's subjugation. The presence of illegal settlements has been an obstruction to development work on phase 2 from Langa to Khayelitsha.
