CAPE TOWN - Metrorail says even though some train services will be suspended during the festive season other train routes will be added.

The rail operator says it's normal practice to suspend some routes over this period.

Metrorail's Riana Scott says trains will undergo maintenance.

"We do this every year, it basically involves two things. We run additional trains during the public holidays and there are certain week day trains that are underutilised we have removed and expedited to run some repairs and maintenance."
