Rail track between Galle and Matale developed

Jan 13, 2011 5:30:33 AM - itnnews.lk

The development work on the rail track between Galle and Matara has been completed.

The final touches of the project are being made at present. After the completion of the first phase it would take only 30 minutes to travel from Galle to Matara. Earlier the Ruhunu Kumari train took 55 minutes to reach this distance on this track. A private Indian Company is carrying out the construction at the cost of 78 million dollars. The first train will leave the Galle Railway Station for Matara on next Sunday.
