The new War Room is tackling the serious train problems frustrating commuters, says Prasa chair Khanyisile Kweyama.

Kwryema talks to Refilwe Moloto about the progress made and what quick fixes are in place.

She says the War Room is collating data from all regions across the country.

There are 3 key focuses. The first is the improvement of security management, the second is serice recovery, and the third is a capital rollout to improve infrastructure.

She acknowledges the years of mismanagement and says service providers not fulfilling their obligations has been nipped in the bad.

But the problems have been going on for many years and it will not be fixed overnight.
