South Africa's iron ore railway to be shut down for annual maintenance

CAPE TOWN, Sept 12 (Reuters) - The main railway line along South Africa's iron ore corridor will be shut down for annual maintenance from 26 September to 2 October, state-owned freight logistics firm Transnet said on Wednesday.

The railway line that stretches up to 861 km (534 miles) from iron ore mines at Sishen in the Northern Cape to the Saldanha port in the Western Cape is South Africa's main link for iron ore exports. (Reporting by Wendell Roelf Editing by James Macharia)
