The extensions would include a link from the existing Gautrain Park Station to Westgate; a link from the Gautrain Rhodesfield Station to Boksburg; a link from Gautrain Sandton Station to Randburg and Honeydew, and a link from Naledi, in Soweto, to Mamelodi, via either the proposed Gautrain Samrand Station, or the existing Gautrain Midrand Station.

This extension would include stations at Blue Hills, Sunninghill, Fourways, Cosmo City and Ruimsig and four Gautrain lines are planned.
