    its a clear sign that people are wiling to pay that extra money to save their time which is so precious. Its such a peaceful drive without the indiscipline 3wheelers, bikes, CTB & Pvt buses. but at the moment access to Kottawa has become a nightmare. Colombo to Kottawa (20kms) 1hour, to Galle (95kms) 1hour. If this continues majority will stick to the normal routes. I think this has to be looked at seriously.
