The clearance of sand from the railway line at Simon’s Town station has begun. It is hoped that more maintenance and monitoring will take place after the clearance so that a similar situation does not develop in a few months. The STCA and other concerned organisations have been engaging with PRASA in connection with this issue for some time. The challenges faced by PRASA are numerous especially the onerous Environmental process which must be undertaken in order to move this volume of sand. Residents are requested to keep clear of the work area for their own safety.
