WC Metrorail under 'immense pressure'
The rail operator said services should return to normal later this month.
CAPE TOWN - Metrorail in the Western Cape on Monday said its service is under immense pressure and will only return to normal later in June.
The rail operator recently pulled five trains off the tracks for servicing, cutting nearly a dozen trips from its daily schedule.
Ten carriages were also gutted in fires recently.
Metrorail's Mthuthuzeli Swartz said, "We are really under pressure and the recent rains have not helped. We've had power outages as well. Despite all of this I guarantee you that within the next two weeks, we will return to our normal service levels."
