metrorail thumb medium90 92News24 reports that Metrorail has warned that train services between Pretoria and Johannesburg and in Cape Town were running late on Tuesday.  

This follows protest action at Tembisa, and due to damage caused by an arson attack at Cape Town Station, in which two trains were set alight at the weekend.  The Pretoria to Johannesburg line was reopened after 07:00 on Tuesday after it was disrupted due to "violent civil unrest" at Oakmoor.  Meanwhile, Metrorail said Platforms 11 and 12 at Cape Town Station were still out of service following the fire.  Platforms 8-10 were reopened on Monday after technicians worked around the clock to restore full functionality.  A number of trains in Cape Town have been cancelled, mostly on the Northern line.
