The Ella –Well­awaya Road had been ob­structed by an earth­slip that oc­curred near the Ella De­valaya last morn­ing. Sev­eral trees that had fallen as a re­sult and had come down the hill along with mounds of earth were also ly­ing across the road fur­ther ex­ac­er­bat­ing the sit­u­a­tion. Rawana-ella po­lice said steps were be­ing taken to open one lane for traf­fic un­til the ob­struc­tions were cleared. Po­lice re­quested motorist and the pub­lic to be cau­tious when pass­ing the en­dan­gered area or take al­ter­na­tive routes.
