prasaDaily News reports that according to the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa), most of the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) railway corridors would resume operations on Monday.  

However, the corridor along the south coast would not operate because of damage to infrastructure between eManzimtoti and Phahla, as well as towards Kelso and Doonside.  Consequently, trains along the south coast would only run between Durban and Umbogintwini.  Normal services would resume in Cato Ridge, but there would be delays due to only a single line working.  Trains between KwaMashu and uMlazi would work, but there would be delays due to speed restrictions.  However, trains would operate hourly in Crossmoor, based on a revised timetable.  Railway routes were suspended after last month’s heavy rains resulted in trees falling and mudslides on rail networks.  Monthly and week 17 ticket holders would be allowed to travel for free from Monday until 18 May.
