Therefore railway transport was suspended for about three decades. It was of national level importance that the said railway lines were reconstructed and used for passenger and cargo transportation with the end of 2009. A memorandum of understanding was signed by the government of Sri Lanka with the government of India in this regard. Accordingly, the government of Sri Lanka decided to integrate the said network of railway lines by reconstructing them with the re-establishment of Signaling and Telecommunication systems.
