Cable theft persists despite efforts by Metrorail
At least 18 arrests have been over the past several days.
CAPE TOWN - Despite improved efforts to curb rail crime, offenders were still managing to target infrastructure.
At least 18 arrests have been made over the past several days.
Metrorail’s Riana Scott said that cable theft remained a problem.
“Cable thieves still target underground signal cable mostly. Although about 93% is recovered, the act of stealing still leads to train delays, as our technical teams need to repair the damage.”
