    This is a automated and also has manual gate, lights and alarms. This is stupid of the people. Just imagine that they voted to elect the governments of sri lanka.....They cannot even think before crossing a railroad. Also people jump to the road from the edge of the platform. Young, old and the pregnant.

    Most of the time, there is an abnormal gate close time for trains which makes pedestrians un-easy and tend to find short cuts or violate the ground rules. we need efficient system than today to rail gates open

    Ben Thursday, 27 September 2018 08:56 PM

    There are times the gate is closed for 30 minutes. This really is stupid at this rail crossing

    That is why dumbo there is a flyover.With calculations it can be proved that longer closures may be possible You are a real Sri Lankan Good luck until a train smash your dumb brain
