Waiting game smells fishy

2017-06-27 06:00

Is the ongoing Simon’s Town railway line debacle another scam?

Do the bus companies transporting passengers from Fish Hoek to Simon’s Town have a favourable contract plus benefits that someone is loathe to terminate?

There seems to be absolutely no hurry to clear the line at Glencairn whatsoever.

This used to take a few hours.

I’m reminded of this situation whenever these buses affect the traffic situation on our busy streets or when there is a train waiting for a points change parked across the entrance to the beach.
