May 15, Colombo: Sri Lanka Railways authorities today ordered the railway workers who have not reported for duty today to report to work immediately as train services had to be cancelled due to the absence of workers.

According to Sri Lanka Railways (SLR) General Manager B.A.P Ariyaratne, a large number of engine drivers, assistants and guards have not reported for work today.

He informed them to report for work immediately as the train services need to be properly managed without causing inconvenience to the public. The Railway Department said about 15 trains had to be cancelled today.

The railway employees who have reported medical leave are required to submit medical certificates from a government hospital to certify their illnesses, the state-run radio said.

A spokesman for the Railway Department has told local media that trains were operated without any delay by this evening and assured the service will return to normal by tomorrow.
