    closure of the Sri Lanka- Canada Friendship road - Alternate routes - Ja-Ela – Ekala road, Minuwangoda – Andiambalama road, Galkanda junction, etc. Very funny actually.

    A lot of these remarks would have no reason to exist if the road closure reason were given--and no doubt it is a perfectly legitimate reason.

    We want a train 200km/h from Kandy to Colombo

    road closures are a common thing in all countries. so don't get your knickers in a twist for this OK

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 10 February 2011 12:13 PM

    Can we know why the Sri Lanka-Canada Friendship Road is to be closed for 2 days?

    Raymond Thursday, 10 February 2011 12:23 PM

    A good move to expand and renovate the road. God bless our Country.

    sira Friday, 11 February 2011 05:15 AM

    Kolamba putha Friday, 11 February 2011 05:37 AM

    Guys, this is only because of road repairs. So this is nothing to get alarmed about!!

    chinthaka Friday, 11 February 2011 06:09 AM

    It is not the Ministry . Go in front of a mirror. You may see who is mixed up .

    Bandu Friday, 11 February 2011 07:25 AM

    100% agree with Sri and we will never achive the goal of "Miracle of Asia" with negetive mind-set.

    steve Thursday, 10 February 2011 05:57 PM

    Exactly. Why they don't say the reason for the closure so the people will have a better understanding.

    Sri Thursday, 10 February 2011 06:03 PM

    don't complain for everything there must be good reason to close this road for 2 days... come to India you will see many road closure's everyday, traffic for 2-3 hrs to travel 7Km no body complain they talk about how easy for them once road complete, you talk about Miracle of asia as funny thing to achieve, it will be if people like Sri Lankan who don't tolerate these things for 2days..... travel and see these are common things in the world, these were common things in the countries who archive developments too.
