Gautrain Leg Nearly Complete

Construction is nearly complete on the first leg of the new Gautrain regional rail link connecting metro Johannesburg with OR Tambo International Airport.

Trackworks and associated railway infrastructure are complete and this section of the Gautrain route is now operational. Ticket vending machines and fare gates have been installed and testing of the system is in progress.

At Sandton station, construction work on the multi-level parkade and erection of structural steelwork canopies that will form the entrance structure on the corner of Rivonia Road and West Street is under way.
