Alas ! We cant use highway from Kaduwela to kadawatha. Opening on 20th June was postponed to 8th August. Very sad.

What an idiotic decision. If and when all these slow moving vehicles get into a highway ??? Do these decision makers know the concept of high ways?Its true Sri Lanka is over populated. But there are other ways to control population than make decision to make mass killings.
