Metrorail in Cape Town says trains on the Central Line will run on a limited service on Thursday.

The line was restored on Wednesday after being suspended for nearly three days due to critical damage to infrastructure over the weekend.

Thousands of commuters were affected, and had to make use alternative transport. The Central Line includes stops like Bishop Lavis and Khayelitsha.

Technicians have been working around the clock to repair the line.

“The suspension has been lifted, and we are able to run a limited service with residual delays. We thank everyone who has taken the time to be patients with us. Our customers as well as all the stakeholders and supporters who helped us during this difficult time” says Metrorail spokesperson, Riana Scott.
