Political clout blocks road development

29 May 2018 12:00 am - 0     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The development work on the Alawwa–Dambulla highway has come to a standstill due to a three-storied building standing in the way defying demolition, they say. 

The building, which houses a private establishment is owned by a former politico, who is said to be preventing the building being demolished using his political clout. 

The spot where this building stands is now reduced to a narrow strip and it has become a veritable traffic bottleneck causing much inconvenience to road users. 

The authorities have not resorted to legal action to remove the building either, they say.
