The prestige Gautrain history book was launched by Gauteng Premier, Nomvula Mokonyane. The interactive coffee table book tells the Gautrain’s history, a project that is proof to what this nation can do. As an example for South Africa and the rest of the world, Gautrain’s history is a living record of valuable lessons learnt, new skills acquired and successful partnerships formed.
First ever rapid rail system for Africa opens the next phase of the system, featuring proven Bombardier Electrostar trains and Bombardier Cityflo 250 train control to bring high quality public transport to the Gauteng Province.
The Gauteng Provincial Government, the Gautrain Management Agency and the Bombela Concession Company are pleased to confirm that the next phase of the Gautrain will be opened for commercial service on 2 August 2011.
