Train delays in CT caused by infrastructure 'sabotage'
The rail operator said that its engineers were quick to repair damaged signal cables.
CAPE TOWN - Metrorail on Monday said some of its infrastructure has been sabotaged.
The rail operator however said that its engineers were quick to react and have repaired damaged signal cables between Woodstock and Salt River, averting major delays in services.
Metrorail operations in the City of Cape Town have over the years been plagued by constant delays due to sabotage and vandalism.
Metrorail's Richard Walker said, "This is obviously very critical equipment for safe train operations. Now you can clearly see that the intent was not to actually steal anything, but it was just to do damage with the intent to seriously disrupt services."
