Enforcement unit to protect Metrorail commuters and infrastructure on the way

The formation of an enforcement unit to prioritise the safety and security of Metrorail commuters and infrastructure moved a step closer this week, with the signing of a memorandum of agreement between the City of Cape Town, along with the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) and the Western Cape provincial government. This follows after a commitment was made during a rail summit convened and attended by the City’s transport and urban development authority (TDA), the Western Cape department of transport and public works, PRASA, rail experts and business leaders, in Woodstock in February.
