Cape Town to build 20km wall along Khayelitsha line

Metrorail to erect 20km wall to protect Cape Town's Khayelitsha line.

Cape Town's Metrorail network is to build a 20-km stretch of wall along its Khayelitsha line as part of an ongoing security plan.
The measures are designed to increase security on the busy central line which has suffered from "months of sustained vandalism" including cable theft and general destruction of infrastructure, according to Metrorail.
Recently train commuters have been left stranded on regular occasions due to damage caused to the tracks. The new wall, whose construction will begin in January, follows the 3-m high wall built along a 4.5km stretch of track between Lansdowne and Nyanga Bridge.
