Living in JHB you know that there are many horrid stories that can keep your imagination working and fear subside. But in a recent visit to the Gautrain site I felt that there is a “light at the end of the Gautrain tunnel’ and real pride to have the privilege to witness this amazing project taking shape.
Gautrain started with intentions in 1998 with pre-feasibility study and now 11 years down the timeline- commitment, professionalism and passion turned drawing and vision into reality.
The rail connections consists of North –South between Tshwane (Pretoria) and Johannesburg and West -East between OR Tambo International Airport and Sandton
The three anchor stations will be located at:
- OR Tambo International Airport;
- Tshwane; and
The seven other stations will be located at:
- Hatfield; and
- Rhodesfield (Kempton Park).
If you want to know the amount of soil that had to be shifted, steel to construct, sand for concrete, all this information and more interesting and not so relevant facts are posted on the Gautrain site that already gained quite numbers of awards.
