Kandy to get Sri Lanka’s first electric rail track

Government has decided to build Sri Lanka’s first electric rail track in Kandy as a solution for the worsening traffic situation in the city and suburbs.

Accordingly, the new electric rail track will be constructed between Rambukkana and Kadugannawa, from Kadugannawa to Kandy via Katugastota as dual rail track.

The total project would be built using concrete pillars above the existing railway line, Transport Ministry announced.

Project would be carried out by a company based in Spain.
