Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis says he has written to Minister Fikile Mbalula asking that a Working Committee be set up to spearhead and manage the rail devolution process.

Hill-Lewis says the task team would be comprised of officials from the City of Cape Town, the Department of Transport, and PRASA.

The Mayor says the Committee would be tasked with setting in action the details of the rail devolution process, which was outlined in the National Rail Policy White Paper gazetted by Mbalula in April this year.
