The coastal railway line from Wellawatte to Colombo Fort is operating on only one track, according to Railway Chief Controller D. V. Gunapala.

This move  is due to the derailment of three carriages of a Colombo-bound train near the Bambalapitiya Railway Station on Saturday evening.

Seven passengers were injured and are currently receiving treatment at the Colombo National Hospital. The Chief Controller added that a special investigation has been launched into the accident.
