A new route linking Lanseria Airport to Cosmo City and Sandton in Johannesburg is on the cards for the Gautrain.

The Gauteng Management Agency (GMA) recently completed a feasibility study on the extension of the Gautrain rail network, which showed that the extension of the rail network will provide significant economic and transport related benefits to the province and the country at large.

The feasibility study identified the following main links and stations of the Gautrain rail network extensions:

  • On the link between Jabulani via Cosmo City and Samrand to Mamelodi, stations include Roodepoort, Little Falls, Fourways, Sunninghill, Olievenhoutsbosch, Irene, Tshwane East and Hazeldean.
  • The link between Sandton and Cosmo City has a station at Randburg.
  • On the link between Rhodesfield and Boksburg there will be a station at East Rand Mall and possible link-up with the OR Tambo International Airport Midfield terminal development.
  • A future link from Cosmo City to Lanseria Airport.

Due to the magnitude and complexity of the project, it will be split into five phases that will take a period of up to twenty years to complete.

The total network is shown below:
