Jaffna Railway Station
The railway station in Jaffna is being reconstructed by the Sri Lanka Railways with the assistance of Bank of Ceylon. The Jaffna Railway Station has been specially reconstructed with modern facilities while preserving its ancient architecture. The reconstructed railway track has been designed with a speed potential of 120 kmph. Rail joints are minimized using the latest modern welding technology. Pre-stressed concrete sleepers have been used to lay the tracks, instead of the traditional wooden sleepers. This ensure durable and stronger tracks, simultaneously helping to preserve the environment.
