Gautrain - High Speed Train Travel in Africa by 


The Gautrain – Platform A, Sandton Station.

Operating both as an underground and above ground railway system, in the various sections of the routes traveled by this particular commuter system.

Aimed primarily at travelers who are inbound, or outbound, from the O.R. Tambo International airprot, in Gauteng, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Gautrain is an 80-kilometre mass rapid transit railway system in Gauteng Province, South Africa, which links Johannesburg, Pretoria, and OR Tambo International Airport.

Gautrain is built on the standard gauge.

The standard gauge (also named the Stephenson gauge after George Stephenson, or Normal gauge) is a widely-used rail gauge. Approximately 60% of the world’s existing railway lines are built to this gauge.

The distance between the inside edges of the rails of standard gauge track is 1435 mm (4 ft 8.5in)

Built by the Bombela Consortium, includes Montreal-based Bombardier Inc – world’s biggest manufacturer of trains – and French civil contractor Bouygues Travaux Publics.

The first part of the system, between Sandton and OR Tambo Airport, opened to the public on 8 June 2010, in time for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
The rest is to be completed in 2011.
