font size    

China National Machinery Import and Export corporation (CMC) on Friday in Colombo signed an agreement with the Sri Lankan Railway Department to provide 100 rail carriages to Sri Lanka.

Zhao Jun, General Manager of Railway Business Division of CMC, and K.A. Premasiri, General Manager of Sri Lanka Railways Department signed the agreement at the department.

According to the agreement, each carriage is capable of carrying over 1,000 people and is expected to be brought to Sri Lanka within a year.

"There is a severe shortage of train coaches at the moment in the Sri Lankan railway, the carriages were needed to provide a satisfactory train service to commuters," Premasiri said after the signing ceremony.

CMC donated machinery and equipment worth 200,000 U.S. dollars to Sri Lanka for the tsunami-hit country to repair its railway tracks on Jan. 25, 2005.

The machinery and equipment donated by CMC include Rail Drilling Machine, Rail Cutting Machine, Hydraulic Adjusting Sleeper Tool, Hydraulic Tamping Machine, and Hydraulic Turnout Tamping Machine.
