The new traffic plan along Sri Jayewardenepura Road from parliament and Battaramulla towards Colombo, that was implemented since last Monday, has been suspended, police said.

Police Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said that the decision has been taken due to the increase of traffic in the Bauddhaloka Mawatha and the nearby areas as a result of the new traffic plan in the Rajagiriya area.

Earlier, DIG Traffic Amarasiri Senaratne said the new traffic plan in Maharagama on the High Level Road was a hundred percent success and added that alternative routes would have to be used if the traffic congestion at the Pannipitiya and Kottawa junctions increases due to the new plan. 

He also said some shortcomings were noticed along the Sri Jayewardenepura Road with severe traffic congestion along Baseline Road where vehicles coming from Sri Jayewardenepura Road crossed Baseline Road. 

ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said they would discuss the matter and sort it out within the next few days.

    Long term solution should be making three over head bridges at Rajagiriya, and kanaththa junction. And stop vehicles entering Sri Jayawardenapura road from Royal gardens. The traffic flow will be smooth.

    No point diverting to alternate routes if those roads are not in good condition. So develop the alternate roads too.
