A strike organized by several railway unions entered its sixth consecutive day on Tuesday, October 1, causing severe transportation disruptions nationwide. Union members, which include drivers, controllers, guards, and stationmasters, are expected to continue the strike indefinitely until their demands over salary anomalies are met. Reduced services, delays, and cancelations are expected on rail services across the country for the duration of the strike action.
Individuals in Sri Lanka are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate rail transportation disruptions, and seek alternative modes of transportation if necessary.
