The sand heaps of the Mount Lavinia Beach, which was filled up recently, had been washed away by the ocean. The photos show how the beach looked before it was filled up with sand, after being filled and it's present form. Pix by Rekha Tharangani Fonseka

    What a god forsaken deceitful government. All done under cover of the pandemic. Disgraceful waste of public money.

    Who cares if the newly dumped sand gets washed away? Access Engineering must be laughing all the way to the bank. Director General of Coast Conservation - any comments?

    Jude Sunday, 31 May 2020 10:56 PM

    Yeah, just like Treasury pumping MONEY into Srilankan airlines!!! It's a internally LOST making airline for the last decade or so !!

    Yankee Dude Monday, 01 June 2020 10:38 AM

    Rs. 800 million washed away , Cannot pay govt. servants salary !

    The landfill can only be kept and even accumulated if several piers are built into the sea vertical to the coast line. On the location where the Mt Lavinia Hotel is situated there is a small land outcrop extending into the sea. During the South West Monsoon the sea water apprently flows northwards parralel to the beach and behind the land outcrop creates a small bay and excavates/washes away the sand. If there are piers that wont happen and sand will accumulate between the piers ..

    Thsi only prove how backwards we are in thinking. Somebody should openly talk about the port city after effects , even if we have disband the projetc. We should have created a port city about 10 to 15 kms away from the island. Later build a nice bride or run a good boat service. FOOLS FOOLS

    Even though I agree that this is a waste of money(mt.lav beach) , the calido beach fill up in kalutara was essential !(covered by the same project as well as several other beaches) Some local politician has removed the naturally exciting sand bank hoping a repeat of the kalutara floods would not happen again . (Which is highly unlikely and extremely idiotic btw ) and during high tide , salt water has seeped in to kalu-ganga threatening the fresh water supply for the entire region . If this beach is covered , then isn't it essential to cover about the other beaches covered in this project? . Not to support the government , but to let the people of Sri Lanka know the status of those beaches and the affect those artificial beaches have on those regions ? .
