metrorail thumb medium90 92SowetanLive reports that Metrorail said on Monday that a protest has disrupted train services between Pienaarspoort and Pretoria.  

Spokesperson Lillian Mofokeng indicated that protesters were burning tyres on the railway tracks‚ damaging infrastructure.  For safety reasons, all trains running on this corridor transporting thousands of commuters were turning around at Eestefabrieke, she advised.  Mofokeng apologised that no alternative transport would be able to be arranged for commuters at affected train stations.  She also condemned such protest action “as it negatively impacts on hundreds of commuters dependent on trains to get to their destination and economic activities."
