Kandy city railway station should have been built 50 years ago – Prof. Bandara
The Kandy City Railway Station, which was built by the Sri Lanka Railways Department, but not opened for a long time, was recently opened for public use under the patronage of Minister of Transport, Highways and Mass Media, Dr. Bandula Gunawardhana.
MP and Prof. Ranjith Bandara who spoke at that time, said: “Minister Bandula Gunawardhana, as the Transport and Highways Minister, is here to open the Kandy City Railway Station, which the people of Kandy have been yearning for, for a long time. Indeed, this should have happened 40 to 50 years ago. Although it is about two kilometres away from the main railway station, due to the narrowness of the city roads, congestion and traffic plans, it is very difficult for the people to travel through it.”
“Although Kandy is a very historic city, the bus stands and taxi parking lots are not located in a systematic order. Therefore, the preliminary work for the Kandy Multimodal Transport Centre started a few years ago to solve this problem. Although it was delayed due to various reasons, the construction has now started very quickly according to your instructions and guidance. We as the people of Kandy believe that it will be completed fast. We hope that Minister Dr. Bandula Gunawardhana will do something to bring order and development to the city of Kandy.”
Kandy District Member of Parliament Gunathilaka Rajapaksa, Kandy District Secretary and other Government officials, General Manager of Railways and other officials and people’s representatives were present at this ceremony which was presided over by Transport, Highways and Mass Media Minister Dr. Bandula Gunawardhana.
