Minister of Transport Kumara Welgama says that there is plan to amend train fares.
The Minister reiterated that although certain bus owners had requested him to increase train charges, he is only concerned about attending to the needs and requests of the public and not those of persons looking forward to fulfil their personal aspirations.
Minister Kumara Welgama expressed these views at the event held to handover the new railway platform at the Weyangoda Railway station today.
The Minister also participated in a test drive of a s-12 locomotive imported from China.
13 power sets have been imported to Sri Lanka from China on a 15 year repayment plan.
