LAUNCH OF THE GAUTRAIN: FAST TRAIN FROM OR TAMBO
FROM PROJECT 2010 Issue 184
Gauteng’s state-of-the-art Gautrain is set to carry its first passengers from OR Tambo International Airport to Sandton on June 8, three days before the World Cup kick-off. The Star reports that Barbara Jensen, spokeswoman for the Gauteng province on the Gautrain, said four stations – OR Tambo, Rhodesfield in Kempton Park, Marlboro and Sandton – would be fully operational by Saturday, June 5, when the inauguration takes place. Although Sandton will be fully operational, construction will still be in progress for the next few months on the second phase, from Sandton to Park station in central Joburg.
