Life in the place of the gate? | கடவைக்கருகில் எமது வாழ்க்கை?

by Hasarel Gallage

There are three main railway crossings in Kokuvil Jaffna. Unfortunately only one of them has a gate to keep the people and vehicles using the road safe from the fast moving trains. Located near essentially crowded locations such as the University of Jaffna, Hindu Ladies College and religious places these unsafe crossings put the lives of pedestrians as well as drivers at great risk. Without a proper gate and an alarm system they are unaware of the approaching trains and are prone to collide with the train.

Anathkesika Lorance Rajakumar a young mobile storyteller trained under the "Mobile Storytelling" program launched by SDJF in collaboration with iVoice and Neelan Thiruchelvam Trust (NTT) wants the authorities as well as the public to look into this matter.
