Some bridges in the country are over 100 years old, Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation says.

Subject minister Nimal Siripala de Silva said that they are planning to build seven new bridges as a result of this.

“The bridges we have now can endure maximum 16.5 tons but new train engines require those that can bear up to at least 20 tons,” the minister said.
