Nov 28, Colombo: Minister of Transport Bandula Gunawardena says railway transportation from Mahawa to Jaffna will be suspended for five months from January 15, 2023.

The Minister said the decision has been taken to suspend the services until the dilapidated railway track is restored.

He said it is possible to provide a good railway service to Jaffna by completing the relevant maintenance work within 5 months.

The Transport Minister assured that the renovation will be completed within five months.
