Yesterday at about 6.08am, two passenger coaches and a motor coach derailed on the Kuils River side of Bellville station on the Northern Line.
Metrorail spokesperson Riana Scott said the recovery of the three carriages involved in the derailment was complete.
“Forty-two commuters received on-site treatment by emergency personnel for minor injuries. The rail network is stable and trains are operating as scheduled, subject to prevailing operational measures, i.e. speed restrictions and manual authorisation in some sections of the network. The cause of the incident is being investigated to determine corrective and preventative measures,” said Scott.
The line was reopened after technical crews completed a safety assessment of the overhead infrastructure and rail tracks.
