    NO NO should give up the land to the sea and make a harbor, Bring the sea water in. Our population is increasing and going to live on the seawater.

    "Commission money" each time new spares are ordered to replace the corroded spare parts.

    Simple solution for the Sri Lanka government. Fill the sea as done near Galle Face. Who care about the cost. The tax payer picks up the tab.
