Trains to have special sanitized compartments

General Manager of Railways Dilantha Fernando yesterday said several special sanitized compartments will be added to ordinary trains running on the main routes to transport students sitting for the Grade 5 Scholarship and GCE Advanced Level examinations. Accordingly, the trains will stop at stations between Gampaha and Veyangoda where a quarantine curfew is in place.

The General Manager said that in areas where curfew is in place, train security guards and police personnel will be deployed to prevent other passengers boarding the specialized compartments to ensure the safety of children, according to a statement by the government information department.
