South Africa’s rail network could soon be better ‘on track’ after Cabinet approved a white paper aimed at developing the country’s critical rail infrastructure. Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula says the policy was approved in March and would be gazetted on Monday. It comes as Transnet announced an R8-billion loss in the 2020/21 financial year. For the longest time, the City of Cape Town has called for the rail service to be improved and for its Cape Town lines to be managed by the municipality to ensure its efficiency. Is this Cabinet-approved policy being welcomed by the City?
