Rail operator Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) says urgent recovery efforts are under way to restore operations to its ore corridor, after wagons derailed in the early hours of June 14.

Teams were dispatched to the scene immediately.

TFR’s iron-ore corridor stretches 861 km from Sishen in the Northern Cape to Saldanha Bay on the West Coast.

This is the second derailment on the corridor this month.

Operations on the corridor have also been negatively impacted on in recent months as a result of cable theft.
