The Railway Department announced that office trains could be delayed this evening due to the ongoing work-to-rule campaign.

Trains were delayed due to the trade union action and a signal fault between Maradana and Colombo Fort this morning as well.

Commuters especially office workers faced grave inconveniences due to the train delays.

Meanwhile, a tense situation erupted at Fort Railway station as season ticket holders claimed their money back.

In this backdrop, certain engine drivers have sought police protection.

At the same time, railway trade unions threatened to launch an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.
