Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS - BY DI­NESH UPEN­DRA

Peo­ple from many vil­lages us­ing the bridge si­t­u­ated in Dandaga­muwa Oya, Galahi­tiyawa within the Kuliyapi­tiya Pradeshiya Sabha and Ur­ban Coun­cil are fac­ing im­mense dif­fi­cul­ties as the bridge has sunk in the mid­dle.

The Provin­cial Road De­vel­op­ment Author­ity and Pradeshiya Sabha in­clud­ing the Ur­ban Coun­cil had taken steps to com­pletely close down the road for the protection of peo­ple of the area.

En­vi­ron­men­tal­ists who vis­ited the place said that the dis­as­ter could be at­trib­uted to not ex­ca­vat­ing the Dandaga­muwa Oya in a proper man­ner, ad­her­ing to reg­u­la­tions.

The peo­ple in the sur­round­ing vil­lages re­quested the au­thor­i­ties to con­struct a new bridge en­abling two ve­hi­cles to go past in­stead of a nar­row bridge used mostly by school­child­ren.

The Kuliyapi­tiya Ur­ban Coun­cil Chair­man Lak­sh­man Adikari to­gether with the Kuliyapi­tiya Pradeshiya Sabha Chair­man Wi­je­siri Ekanayaka im­me­di­ately vis­ited the area and made ar­range­ments with the of­fi­cials of Gov­ern­ment In­sti­tu­tions for an al­ter­na­tive road for the safe us­age of peo­ple of the area.

En­vi­ron­men­tal­ists who vis­ited the place said that the dis­as­ter could be at­trib­uted to not ex­ca­vat­ing the Dandaga­muwa Oya in a proper man­ner, ad­her­ing to reg­u­la­tions
