    Transcend hemispheres through a new metro line serving central Johannesburg! This WEBEO explores the possibilities of an underground metro rail system in the South African city of Johannesburg, which has a population of 5 million within its city limits. Johannesburg is the perfect candidate for such a metro system as there is high foot traffic/density throughout a large area of the central business district. Also, Park station, the main commuter railway station, away from the business districts, so the metro can help ease roadside congestion throughout the city. Finally, the metro will serve underserved regions of central Johannesburg by offering them an alternative to the existing and overcrowded BRT system. The system consists of two lines. Line 1 connects from Mayfair to Troyeville go...

    Every single day for over 20 years the 6:00 pm train from Cape Town at Bellville platform 4 is dangerously overcrowded as passengers force themselves onto the only train going in their direction for the next 25 mins. It has become common practice to see people falling off moving trains,people hanging out of moving trains,stampeding into trains from fear of being left behind,travelling between carriages,at the ends of trains,and even on top of trains,with no security guards in sight. Passengers have to ask each other where approaching trains are headed as digital signboards and overhead speakers are often not in use. Government rail operator PRASA/Metrorail attempted to finally alleviate the situation by purchasing advanced new European locomotives, but the locomotives ordered by PR...

Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa. Johannesburg is the provincial capital of Gauteng, the wealthiest province in South Africa, having the largest economy of any metropolitan region in Sub-Saharan Africa.The city is one of the 40 largest metropolitan areas in the world, and is also the world's largest city not situated on a river, lake, or coastline. While Johannesburg is not officially one of South Africa's three capital cities, it does house the Constitutional Court -- South Africa's highest court. Johannesburg is the source of a large-scale gold and diamond trade, due to its location on the mineral-rich Witwatersrand range of hills. Johannesburg is served by O.R. Tambo International Airport, the largest and busiest airport in Africa and a gateway for international air travel to and from the rest of southern Africa. According to the 2007 Community Survey, the population of the municipal city was 3,888,180 and the population of the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area was 7,151,447.[citation needed] A broader definition of the Johannesburg metropolitan area, including Ekhuruleni, the West Rand, Soweto and Lenasia, has a population of 10,267,700.[citation needed] The municipal city's land area of 1,645 km2 (635 sq mi) is very large when compared to other cities, resulting in a moderate population density of 2,364 /km2 (6,120 /sq mi). Johannesburg once again includes Soweto, which was a separate city from the late 1970s until the 1990s. Originally an acronym for "SOuth-WEstern TOwnships", Soweto originated as a collection of settlements on the outskirts of Johannesburg populated mostly by native African workers in the gold mining industry. Eventually incorporated into Johannesburg, the apartheid regime (in power 1949--1994) separated Soweto from the rest of Johannesburg to make it a completely Black area. Lenasia is also part of Johannesburg. Gauteng is growing rapidly due to mass urbanisation which is a feature of many developing countries. According to the State of the Cities Report, the urban portion of Gauteng -- comprised primarily of the cities of Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni (the East Rand) and Tshwane (greater Pretoria) -- will be a polycentric urban region with a projected population of some 14.6 million people by 2015.

Passengers have to ask each other where approaching trains are headed as digital signboards and overhead speakers are often not in use. Government rail operator PRASA/Metrorail attempted to finally alleviate the situation by purchasing advanced new European locomotives, but the locomotives ordered by PRASA CEO Lucky Montana do not fit South Africa's existing railway structure as the new trains are too big.This in spite of Montana being warned about the incompatibility,raising suspicions and an enquiry about his actions.All while Montana and PRASA denied any flaws with their new multi billion dollar purchases. Amidst the controversy, PRASA head engineer Dr Daniel Mthimkhulu resigned after enquiries revealed he falsified his proof of education. With his poor grammar displayed in the link below, it is doubtful he completed high school,let alone a doctorate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shCsuwz_EUI PRASA CEO Montana has since been suspended, but even though both men have lost their posts, PRASA still maintain the trains are 100% suitable for use on SA rails even though the trains are nowhere in sight on the much needed urban lines,seriously hampering the economic progress of an expanding population. Meanwhile,South African President Jacob Zuma lives in his personal multi million dollar estate, while tens of thousands of South Africans have no access to running water,toilets,basic education,and live below the poverty line.Many of them in streets,under bridges,in bushes and make shift shelters.
