Four office trains to ply from today

Sri Lanka Railways will ply several long-distance trains to provide transport facilitate to State and private sector employees who travel to and from their workplaces according to the schedule implemented last Thursday (13), an SLR official said.

This will be implemented to facilitate State and private sector workers living in distant areas finding difficult to reach their workplaces due to travel restrictions between Provinces and lack of transport.

Accordingly, four trains will be operated in the morning and in the evening. Office trains will operate from Kandy to Colombo (leaves at 5.00 a.m), from Maho to Fort (leaves at 4.45 a.m), from Chilaw to Fort (leaves at 5.50 a.m), and a special train between Bolawatta and Puttalam (leaves at 7.00 a.m) and an office train from Beliatta to Maradana leaves at (4.30 am) every day.

Meanwhile, the above trains will leave for their return destinations in the evening as follows;

The office train that had arrived at Fort in the morning leaves for Kandy at 5.45 p.m, the train that had arrived from Maho will leave at 6.00 p.m, the Chilaw train will leave at 5.18 p.m, the special train from Bolawatta will leave for Bolawatta from Puttalam at 4.00 p.m and the train that came from Beliatta leaves Maradana at 4.40 pm.
