A group of senior officials from the Colombo Port City Development project met the transport master plan team of the Western Region Megapolis Project to discuss the ongoing study on light rail transit (LRT) lines and its connectivity to the Port City.
LRT feasibility study group team leader Dr. Dimantha de Silva, accompanied by their Japanese consultants, met Port City Project Director Nihal Fernando together with the senior engineers and consultants at the CHEC Port City Colombo head office.
Both parties exchanged views and ideas on the ways to establish access to the Port City and the rest of the city via the planned LRT line. The internal infrastructure within the Colombo Port City will be designed to accommodate the LRT, with specially-designed transport nodes.
Further discussion on the ongoing plans in this regard is scheduled to take place in the near future.
