Metrorail says its happy that trains are finally operating on another section of the Central Line.

Commuters can now use trains from Nyanga to Cape Town.

The Central Line has been closed since 2019, following extreme vandalism and theft of infrastructure.

Prasa is busy with recovery work while shack dwellers are still occupying the train tracks in Langa.

Metrorail’s acting spokesperson, Zino Mihi, says the company has also issued its formal timetable for the Central Line.

“The resumption of the Langa – Nyanga line is a major achievement for the region as the Nyanga corridor has been non-operational since November 2019. As the region, we are happy to fulfil our obligations
as a community-driven service provider of mass public transportation within the Cape Town Metropole”.

“Commuters must note that the train will depart from Nyanga station to Mutual station, where commuters will be able to connect to a train to Cape Town. Commuters travelling to Cape Town via Pinelands can connect with the train numbers that start with ‘95’ from Langa to Cape Town. Commuters will also be able to connect to the Northern Corridor (Bellville, Kraaifontein, Eerste Rivier and Wellington)”, added Mihi.
