17 trains have been cancelled on the central line due to cable theft, causing delays of between 30 to 40 minutes.
We have a problem with deliberate vandalism out in Central. For two consecutive days now we've had cables stolen and an apparatus case that was severely vandalised in Langa.— Richard Walker, Metrorail regional manager
