The Central Metrorail railway line in Cape Town has not been operational since November 2019. It is the busiest railway line in the city and carries some of the city's poorest residents from areas like Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain to job opportunities in the CBD.
This year, Prasa acting Western Cape regional manager Raymond Maseko, who is in charge of running Metrorail in the city, hopes to get the line working again. He also plans to introduce a safer and more reliable railway service.
News24 spoke to Maseko about when the Central line will be reintroduced, what went wrong and how Prasa plans to improve safety.
