metrorail thumb medium90 92ANA reports that Metrorail said on Thursday that morning commuter train services operating in Johannesburg were experiencing delays of up one hour following infrastructural challenges.  

Train 0841 damaged overhead wires at Jeppe Station, which resulted in a fibre break affecting Jeppe, Johannesburg, Braamfontein, Langlaagte, and Croesus control signal panels.  Trains were delayed from Germiston to George Goch due to an overhead power failure.  “Technicians are working hard around the clock to restore the service back to normal,” Gauteng Metrorail spokesperson, Lillian Mofokeng said.  Commuters were advised where possible to use alternative transport to get to their destinations.
