RSR - PRASA is currently operating trains without a valid safety permit

The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) is currently operating trains without a valid safety permit.

PRASA’s permit, which was previously issued with special conditions, expired at midnight on 31 July and the Railway Safety Regulator (RSR) has taken a decision not to issue a permit until it is satisfied that PRASA’s planned interventions addresses the current safety concerns.

The RSR is of the opinion that PRASA cannot demonstrate to the Regulator that it has the ability, commitment and resources to properly assess and effectively control the risks to assets and safety of its customers, staff, contractors, visitors and others who may be affected by its railway operations.

The RSR is committed to its mandate and will continue to ensure that safety remains central to railway operations at all times.
