Steps are being taken to take down walls surrounding government buildings in the Colombo area making them more people and environmentally friendly, Colombo Municipal Council Special Commissioner Omar Kamil told Daily Mirror online

He added that as a first step all walls surrounding police buildings in the Colombo area were taken down as visible at present. The green turfs in those premises are now visible and this is moving towards a more environmentally friendly city, he added. 

All these steps are being taken under the garden city concept of the Defense Secretary and the UDA and the Colombo Municipal Council is assisting in this regard, Mr. Kamil said.

Earlier it was reported that The Colombo Municipal Council was in the process of promoting the growing of vegetables in median strips (Centre Islands) along the Colombo roads and sponsors of these median strips have been requested to take steps to beautify these strips, taking into consideration the government’s move to promote the growing of vegetables, there by setting an example.

    what if encroachers put up building such as boutique with the support of local politicians

    ind Tuesday, 31 May 2011 07:20 AM

    yes, but the opposition can't digest the truth.

    Doha Boydohaboy Tuesday, 31 May 2011 08:13 AM

    i still cant realize what actually influenced this decision

    Dillon Tuesday, 31 May 2011 08:14 AM

    Great to hear! hope real change is happening towards making colombo a cleaner and greener place.

    Aruna Tuesday, 31 May 2011 02:28 AM

    good for all the dogs.

    gamunu Tuesday, 31 May 2011 02:40 AM

    this is good move but how long.. another money wasting way.. after some times again new authority will construct walls. money for both breaking and constructing..what a nice country.

    TLK Tuesday, 31 May 2011 02:43 AM

    Good move!
    We see a real change in Sri Lanka.
    Also, please make operations transparent.

    Hareesz Tuesday, 31 May 2011 02:43 AM

    Good move. Less place for Election posters

    Rosh Tuesday, 31 May 2011 03:04 AM

    We'll get a better view what these government servants are up to.

    RBN 72 Tuesday, 31 May 2011 03:19 AM

    Looks a good move.

    AK Tuesday, 31 May 2011 03:52 AM

    Nice move!

    amir Tuesday, 31 May 2011 03:57 AM

    why not we keep the walls and try to increase the efficiency of the government organizations and employees to make them more people and TIME friendly.....

    Black Mamba Tuesday, 31 May 2011 04:09 AM

    More than wall it's the check points and forces personne, armed to the teeth that are walking down the highway, streets, by-lanes, railway tracks etc. that irks us common people!!!!!

    rickeymartin Tuesday, 31 May 2011 04:12 AM

    he heee good move, so we can get inside easily. freedom of infiltrating.

    Nature lover Tuesday, 31 May 2011 04:41 AM

    this is a good move
    without walls, it certainly looks more spacious...and greener too..
    all the best!

    asoka Tuesday, 31 May 2011 04:38 AM

    what about the fortress around temple trees...?

    indika Tuesday, 31 May 2011 04:43 AM

    Good move. Same time should give efficient service too.

    I Hussein Tuesday, 31 May 2011 04:59 AM

    Can you make those govt. officers people freindly as well?

    amir Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:05 AM

    Why not we keep the walls and try to increase the efficiency of the government organizations and emploees so they can be more people and TIME friendly

    Labby Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:05 AM

    What about reopening Janadhipathi Mawatha? If they cannot make that road 'people friendly' then it doesn't make sense.

    bis Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:11 AM

    And 40% will be gained....... :(

    Noah Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:18 AM

    These days i am witnesing a much clean colombo

    Fayad Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:23 AM

    We have to get-rid of the negative thinking why not see this as a positive move.

    Lal Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:26 AM

    is this is the most important issue to find an quick solution at this time?

    peace Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:31 AM

    Please break the walls carefully. Then we could sell the bricks and buy the chain link fence.

    Shammie Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:34 AM

    How nice, we can't believe....

    Abdur Razzak Tuesday, 31 May 2011 05:46 AM

    too early to comment, but seems to be a good move. lets hope this fullfils the purpose.
