prasaNews24Wire reports that the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa) will be carrying out maintenance at Metrorail's Bosman station in Pretoria, completely closing it to the public for at least 40 days.  

Gauteng Metrorail spokesperson Lillian Mofokeng that, in a necessary move, commuters would not be able to embark at the Bosman station.  She indicated:  "The benefits of a new modernised infrastructure will be a safer, faster, smoother and world-class train service with improved travelling times.  The work will involve the replacement of old signals, turnouts and points machines as part of Prasa’s modernisation programme."  All Johannesburg to Pretoria trains will turn around at Centurion station, where buses will ferry commuters to Bosman station.  Mofokeng said that tickets would only be sold to commuters travelling between listed stations.
