trains from Colombo to Hikkaduwa

My husband & I are due to land at the airport at 08.20, will it be possible to get from there to Maradana in time to get the train at 10.30 to Hikkaduwa?

Hi there,

Tight but 80% chance of being doable if you pay for the Expressway toll for the cab. Out with luggage 9:20, at Peliyagoda junction 9:45, gives you 45 mins to cross rush Colombo traffic to Maradana. BUT you're mixing things up: that train leaves Maradana 10:16 and Fort 10:30. So cab must bring you to Fort, with less chances of a seat....

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

That time of the morning traffic from Peliyagoda to Maradana/Fort is very bad.
