Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa Receives Safety Permit

The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) has received a one year safety permit, dated the 31stof August 2018, through to 31 July 2019, allowing them to continue operations.

However, the United National Transport Union (UNTU) is disturbed as to how the Railway Safety Regulator (RSR) could have provided PRASA with a safety permit to operate, after three recent life threatening incidents on just one of South Africa’s commuter train routes.

UNTU fears that PRASA has not managed to rectify all the problems following the earlier issuing of only a temporary safety operating licence that would have lapsed by midnight tonight, 31 August 2018.
