metrorail thumb medium90 92Sunday Tribune reports that Metrorail services in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) are expected to be operational from Monday after a shutdown last week.  

Metrorail officials, Durban mayor Zandile Gumede and train commuters will meet to discuss new security measures.  Prasa Metrorail KZN spokesperson Zama Nomnganga said there would be tighter security at every train station.  Two Fridays ago, commuters attacked and burned the uMlazi ticket office, trains and staff vehicles parked near the station, leading to the suspension of the service.  No arrests have yet been made following damage estimated at R8-million.  This latest wave of public violence affecting rail infrastructure came after similar protests in Gauteng and the Western Cape.
