The Minister of Transport, Ms Dipuo Peters, apologises to the passengers, and their families and friends, who are on board the three trains which are delayed in Bloemfontein. The Trains are destined for Queenstown, East London and Port Elizabeth and another one for Johannesburg, which has stopped at Springfontein.

The delays have been caused by the Transnet freight train, which derailed on the Southern side of Bloemfontein.

To ensure the safety and comfort of passengers, the Port Elizabeth train is already rerouted through Kimberley and buses will be arranged for the Johannesburg train.

Issued by Department of Transport
