More buses, more trains for the holiday season View(s):Additional buses and trains have been deployed for the convenience of commuters travelling to and from their homes during and after the Sinhala and Tamil New Year. The Road Development Authority (RDA) is also taking measures to minimise traffic congestion at entry and exit points along the Southern Expressway. Sri Lanka Railways has deployed an additional 62 long distance special trains, Railways General Manager Dilanth Fernando told the Sunday Times. Accordingly, instead of system generated tickets, officers at toll gates will be issuing printed tickets by hand to minimise delays. The public can also call the expressway hotline on 1969 to check about traffic congestion along exit points, he said.
