    Rail tracks are for trains to run. Not for walking, Wait for the day start walking on the Hi way.Why not start cleaning up all the structures constructed on the reservations of rail tracks and train stations.Just take Ragama station, The area belonging to rail staion can be cleared off and converted to a massive car park,where people could park and ride the train.Where are our planners if we have ANY,.
