The Railways Department yesterday decided to limit all train services up to Negombo on the Colombo-Puttalam line from this evening, the General Manager Railways Dilantha Fernando said.  


Accordingly, the train service would be operated only up to Negombo and the last train  left Colombo, Fort Station at 5.30 p.m. to Puttalam.

  
He said the restrictions were made following the imposing of Police curfew in the Puttalam District and Kochchikade in Negombo from last evening to assist in the measures being adopted to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the country.   


“No trains were operated beyond Negombo from yesterday,” he said.  


“Only one train was operated up to Puttalam yesterday to transport commuters who had arrived in Colombo last morning. That train will not return to Colombo Fort until the curfew is lifted,” he said.
