Snow cancels long-distance trains
Johannesburg - Long-distance train services were cancelled on Tuesday due to poor weather, the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa) said.
"All trains from Gauteng to Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal will be affected and will result in the cancellation of services," Prasa spokesperson Leonard Potgieter said in a statement.
The Trans Natal, between Johannesburg and Durban, and the Amatola, between Johannesburg and East London, would not run on Tuesday.
"All customers currently en-route on Mainline Passenger Services trains will be cared for and provided with food and drinks until the services are restored. Alternative transport arrangements will also not be possible since the roads to these provinces are also closed."
Snowfall across the country has led to road closures.
