Prasa opens GP Nerve Centre in Tembisa
It cost nearly R155 million to build and has created around 180 jobs.
JOHANNESBURG - Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) has officially opened its Gauteng Nerve Centre, which will monitor train traffic in the province.
The state of the art centre is situated in Tembisa near the Kaalfontein station.
It will act as a signal control hub with the latest technology to enable operators to monitor passenger train activities.
This Nerve hub will consolidate about eight centres across the province.
Modern technology will help operators monitor activities on a much more sophisticated level and, with the new trains coming into the country, this centre will be on par with other international facilities.
Not only will it monitor train traffic, but it will also house maintenance teams and manage safety and security.
Prasa Director Mashila Matlala said, "The Gauteng Nerve Centre is now placed where the future of train traffic control will change forever."
It cost about R155 million to build and has created around 180 jobs.
