The Railway Department has decided to implement a special train service in lieu of Vesak.
Superintendent of Railways L A R Rathnayaka stated that steps have been taken to operate additional trains on the 05th, 06th and 07th of this month.
The trains will operate from Colombo Fort to Anuradhapura, Kandy, Aluthgama and Kalutara and will leave the Fort Station at 8:30am every morning.
Meanwhile, we also spoke to the National Transport Commission to find out if a special bus service will be in operation during the Vesak weekend.
Chairman of the NTC Roshan Gunawardena stated that a decision regarding this would be taken tomorrow.
