Gautrain probes power problem
The Bombela Concession Company says Monday’s power blackout was not an Eskom failure.
JOHANNESBURG - The Bombela Concession Company on Tuesday said it launched a full investigation into a power supply problem that left Gautrain passengers stranded on Monday night.
The line between Hatfield and Park Station stopped working for about 90 minutes after 7pm.
Special arrangements were made to assist commuters.
Buses operated for extended hours to make sure everyone reached their destinations.
Bombela spokesperson Kelebogile Machaka said the problem was not Eskom's fault.
"With every incident that happens we investigate fully so that it does not happen again."
