The railway service which had been suspended due to derailment of the Colombo-bound Yal Devi express train between Galgamuwa and Ambanpola stations had resumed from this morning, the Railway Operations Superintendent Gamini Seneviratne said.
He said the train services were operated up to Maho and Galgamuwa railway stations this morning.
A special shuttle by bus has been arranged between Maho and Galgamuwa railway stations to facilitate the commuters, he said.
Thereafter, the commuters would board the Jaffna bound rain and continue their journey, Mr. Seneviratne said.
“Those commuters need not buy a separate bus ticket to move between stations but the train tickets issued from the stations would facilitate the service,” he said.
Railway investigation team had been assigned to investigate the cause for the derailment. However, it may take another few more days to restore the damaged railway track, Mr. Seneviratne said.
Yesterday, the Colombo-bound Yal Devi express train from Kankesanthurai (KKS)/Jaffna derailed near the Galgamuwa Railway Station. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
