The coastal railway line between Aluthgama and Kalutara will be closed from January 1 for two months. The rail track will be closed for upgrading under the third phase of the high-speed southern railway project, a Sri Lanka Railways spokesman said.
He said that the upgraded railway line from Aluthgama to Kalutara will be reopened in March.
“Train services on the coastal line will be limited from Colombo to Kalutara and Galle to Matara in January and February,” the spokesman said.
Under the second stage, the railway line from Galle to Aluthgama was closed from September 1 this year for development activities.
