Authorities have focused attention on the possibility of coordinating the proposed luxury bus service on the Southern Highway with the train service on the Kelani Valley line.

Director, Operations of the Southern Highway, B. D. Bandara said a proposal had been made to prepare the time-table of the bus service in keeping with the time of departure of trains from Kottawa. He pointed out that the entire journey from Galle to Colombo would not take more than two hours if the passengers proceeded from Kottawa to Colombo by train. (Buddhika Kumarasiri)

    Good idea. More people will use public transport if it is convenient, comfortable and clean.
