Ambulances plying on expressways will be exempted from toll: Rajitha


Minister of Health, Nutrition, and Indigenous Medicine Dr. Rajitha Senarathne has stated that he would take steps to make ambulances toll free on expressways.

He made the assurance during an inspection visit to Puttalam Base Hospital recently. He was responding to a representation made by the health officers that when they are in the ambulances, they have to pay the expressway fare when they transport patients from the Puttalam Hospital to the National Hospital.

He continued that a Cabinet Memorandum on making ambulances toll free on expressways would be presented in Parliament soon.
