At last ! Breaking news is that the Gautrain is FINALLY ready to rock and roll (not literally otherwise that would be a bit dangerous).
The much-awaited service between OR Tambo and Sandton wil be operational today, just in time for the World Cup … talk about running it to the wire !
But lets not complain !
Four stations – OR Tambo, Rhodesfield in Kempton Park, Marlboro and Sandton are now operational.
Over the World Cup, it is anticipated thousands of fans will be using service, but once the World Cup is over and forgotten, this new service will be invaluable to anyone wanting to get easily and quickly from the airport into Sandton, without battling against the ever-present heavy traffic.
