Transnet launches new health train

Cape Town - Transnet has launched its second health train, the Phelophepa II, costing R82m.

The first Phelophepa train has served more than 6 million in rural communities over the past 18 years.

The trains, crewed by medical specialists including a number of final year students, provide primary healthcare, dental, psychological and optical services.

Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba launched the Phelophepa II this morning in East London at the Mount Ruth Station.

Transnet’s rail engineering division, TRE, was responsible for the development of the new train with the Swiss-based pharmaceutical group F Hoffman La Roche a major sponsor of both trains.

The trains operate from January to September every year and cover vast areas of South Africa where primary healthcare facilities are under pressure.
