The construction of public washrooms at railway stations in Polgahawela, Rambukkana, Hatton, Puttalam, Chilaw, Trincomalee and Batticaloa have been completed, the statement read.

In addition, washrooms are under construction in the Kadugannawa, Peradeniya and Ja-Ela railway stations. Each washroom is being built at a cost of Rs 9.3 million and is equipped with special facilities for differently-abled persons.
