Indian Railway engineers, technicians arrive at Medawachchiya

[TamilNet, Sunday, 25 April 2010, 07:25 GMT]
A group consisting of Indian Railway Department engineers and technicians has arrived in the North to commence work on the reconstruction of the railway tracks and railway stations from Oamanthai to Kaangkeasanthu’rai (KKS), a project which India earlier announced as aid to Sri Lanka, sources in Vavuniyaa said. The Indian engineers and technicians presently located in Medawachchiya and Vavuniyaa have begun to work in stages. Meanwhile, an Indian firm has already started to construct the railway tracks between Vavuniyaa and Thalai Mannaar, the sources added.

The railway rails between Vavuniyaa and KKS had been removed and the railway stations along the stretch had been destroyed during the war.

Reconstruction of the tracks and stations between Vavuniyaa and KKS will commence soon.

In the first stage the stretch between Vavuniyaa and Thaa'ndikku’lam is expected to be completed in three months, Sri Lanka Railway Department sources said.

The second stage of the reconstruction will be the tracks between Thaa’ndikku’lam and Oamanthai after which work will begin on the stretch between Oamanthai and KKS.
