The first phase of the world-class multimillion-rand underground railway system for Durban is under construction at Inanda and would be completed by October next year.

This was announced by Minister of Transport, Jeff Radebe, yesterday.

Radebe said the project was part of the R5billion Bridge City Initiative.

The system will service commuters from Inanda, Ntuzuma, KwaMashu and Phoenix.

Also included in the development are a shopping mall, residential flats, offices, cinemas and the 350-bed Pixley ka-Isaka Seme Memorial Hospital.

The main partners in the project are the South African Rail Commuter Corporation (SARCC) and the eThekwini municipality.

"Their decision to forge a strategic partnership to bring forward the implementation of the rail plan for the Greater Inanda Rail Corridor was bold and innovative.

"Construction is also under way for the delivery of a 3km double line from Duffs Road station, as well as a world-class underground station to cater for 400000 passengers during peak hours."

He said SARCC would invest more than R350million to provide greater access to quality public transport services for people in areas outside the city.
