President Mahinda Rajapaksa released water to the Hambantota harbour a short while ago. The port has been named the ‘Magampura International harbour’ and the first ship is expected to dock at the port in November.

The first phase of the Port will consist of two 600m general purpose berths, a 310m bunkering berth and a 120m small craft berth. It will also contain a bunkering facility and tank farm which will include 8 tanks for marine fuel, 3 tanks containing aviation fuel and 3 for Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG).  A 15 floor administrative complex is also under construction as part of the project.

    Good timing.
    People can now forget about SF's verdict.
    As we proud sinhalees always do.
    We only remember a week's history.

    Deepal Sunday, 15 August 2010 06:02 AM

    More to come? We can see that. More disaster to the country.

    Don't forget Ranil started this project with the four year feasiblity. MR continued. Credit should go to all.

    Pottuvil resident Sunday, 15 August 2010 10:44 AM

    Give credit where it is due. What an achievement. Let us all be proud, for a small country where the economy was drained for the past 30+ yrs for the wrong reasons, this is a gigantic leap.

    menaka Monday, 16 August 2010 04:00 AM

    yes.. there will be more disaster as long as we have negative people like you!

    Senerath Sunday, 15 August 2010 11:13 AM

    Ranil W did not start anything. Proposal was made in 1994 and 2001, but CBK nor Ranil had any interest to start any work. Neither was Mangala S when he was the minister.

    By building the habour inland, Sri Lanka saved millions of dolars. To build a port in the sea altogether, cost is about 5 times more...

    Chandana Monday, 16 August 2010 04:17 AM

    Deepal - Opening a new port is a disaster???. Wake up and see the reality dumb man

    maha Monday, 16 August 2010 05:31 AM

    Pusa, Deepal,
    How could a country be developed with people like you. Always pesimistic. Wake up and accept the reality. Praise what is worthy of praise.

    Jamie Sunday, 15 August 2010 12:48 PM

    Senarath,
    Without a feasibility report nothing can be done.
    Failure of feasibility means failure of the project. Just like the Weerawila Airport. Ranil started taking the feasibility fyi.

    Lankawick Sunday, 15 August 2010 04:41 AM

    Fantastic !!! - Fabulous !!!

    Thank You - President MR....for your leadership and vision in taking Sri Lanka forward to Economic Prosterity...!!
