Transport Minister Kumara Welgama has instructed Railway authorities to withdraw the speed limit rules which are causing often train delays.

Engine Drivers Association President T.G. Wijerathna told our news team that the minister gave these instructions after a discussion he had with the Engine Drivers Association this afternoon.

Several incidents were reported in the last few weeks after angry passengers assaulted engine drivers for train delays.

A similar incident was thwarted this morning after authorities intervened to stop passengers when they tried to assault an engine driver at Narahenpita on the Kelaniveli line.

Engine Drivers Association President T.G. Wijerathna told our news team that attention was drawn to this situation during the discussion with the minister today.
