RAIL PASSENGER BUSINESS REMAINS UNDER PRESSURE •Rolling stock reliability and availability • Ageing fixed assets and old Technology • Demand for additional services/capacity. Currently limited network & rolling stock capacity • Increased input costs = labour, energy and material • Sharp increase in capital investment without commensurate increase in operational funding • Human Resources capacity/skills to rationalise operations, maintain, sustain and expand the network • Onerous legacy issues


MODERNISATION AND EXPANSION OPPORTUNITIES

Biggest challenge for PRASA in capital investment is to obtain the correct balance between sustaining the current system, whilst at the same time starting to build new capacity to meet future demands as well as modernising the system through migration to more contemporary technologies.
