    We won't see an end this tragic deaths until the heartless Transport Minister is cured of his INSANITY! How many of these tragic deaths have occurred in these UNPROTECTED railway crossings in the recent past BUT TO DATE THE AUTHORITIES ARE MINDLESSLY AND HEARTLESSLY IGNORING THIS ISSUE!!!

    There are officers and Minister waging from railway. These people requesting more money to deploy signal lights, is much costly. However there are several Sri Lankan who designed and demonstrated, how to implement signal lights on railways tracks to eliminate such disasters with low cost. Still our responsible people are sleeping.

    Rata Nagamu, Api hademu. !!!!!!!!

    every country in the world has at least some unprotected railway crossings. the choice is with the driver to cross or not. also train is not a small thing to miss.

    My Name is Dr Sarath Wimalasuriya...I invented a solar powered radio controlled fully automatic rail gate. As railway authorities didn't allow me to test it on an unprotected railway crossing, I fixed it on my compound. Suba Anaagathayak !
