Metrorail has suspended its operations in Cape Town on Monday, December 28, because of a COVID-19 infection at its Regional Train Traffic Control and Management Centre.

The centre ceased operations on Sunday [December 27] as a precautionary measure and will remain closed for sanitisation and deep cleaning, therefore no trains will run on Monday.

The suspension is necessary to permit the deep cleaning and sanitisation of the Regional Train Traffic Control and Management Centre following a confirmed COVID-19 infection at the facility,” said Metrorail in a statement.

“This is a precautionary step to protect staff and to ensure the continuity of train services in the coming days.”

Train services are expected to resume on Tuesday, December 29.
