metrorail thumb medium90 92EWN reports that Metrorail commuters in Cape Town who travel on the notorious central line have been left in the lurch for a fourth week.  

Repairs are still underway following a spate of vandalism attacks on the route.  The central line, Metrorail's busiest route, services communities including Mitchells Plain, Khayelitsha, Bonteheuwel and Langa.  Metrorail still could not indicate when services would be up and running again.  The alternative Golden Arrow Bus Service off-peak concession came to an end last week and rail commuters opting to continue using buses will now be required to purchase tickets.  Meanwhile, efforts have been beefed-up to clamp down on criminals paralysing the rail service.  Fourteen cable thieves have been apprehended since the start of the year, the majority in Bonteheuwel.
