Sri Lanka to restructure public transportation

 May 27, 2022  

Colombo: Transport and Highways Minister Bandula Gunawardena indicated that public transportation will be reorganized shortly in an effort to reduce the impact of the continuing fuel crisis on the common man.

Minister Bandula Gunawardena was quoted by Colombo Page as saying, “The most appropriate step that can be taken as a public transportation service is to reorganize and improve public transportation, taking into account the need to meet the daily requirements of the home and obstacles that have befallen the education of children as well as the overall standard of living.”

He also stated that the railway infrastructure was crucial in Sri Lanka’s transformation from a self-sustaining to an export-oriented plantation economy.
