    This is probably for the night races. There are millions of sand bags piled up there.

    The reason for carpeting this stretch is cos of the motor races which is to be held 1st week of December.

    Lobo Friday, 23 November 2012 09:23 AM

    Our guys have got their priorities right. When the masses are struggling to eat a decent meal they're carpeting the roads to stage a race.

    Preparation for Colombo Night races!

    while it is good to see the main artery in the country is being resurfaced, one must realize that Galle Road is a relatively well maintained road compared to so many other roads that are in dire straits that need urgent repairs.
    Guess unless night races are held in those roads they won't receive any repairs.

    Additional cost

    Night allowances, Extra high power lighting, disturbance to residents etc.

    Mr. Citizen Friday, 23 November 2012 08:22 AM

    Minister Friday, 23 November 2012 08:18 AM

    It is for the next night races in Colombo. So let us rejoice!

    Grumpy Friday, 23 November 2012 08:17 AM
