The National Building Research Organisation (NBRO) today warned that there was a risk of landslide near the 114th km post on the Southern Expressway between Imaduwa and Kokmaduwa due to the adverse weather prevailing in the Southern Province.

NBRO Landslide Research and Risk Management Division head R.M.S. Bandara advised motorists to take care when close to the 114th km post.

“We have already informed the Road Development Authority (RDA) about the situation and they are looking into it. If the adverse weather continues, we might have to close the road,” he told Daily Mirror.

He said the Kokmaduwa interchange had been severely affected by the heavy rains.

The NBRO, issuing the landslide warning on Wednesday, said those residing in hilly parts of Galle -- including Niyagama, Nagoda, Habaraduwa, Baddegama and surrounding areas -- should be vigilant.

In its landslide warning to Matara, the NBRO advised the residents of Kotapola, Pitabeddara, Akuressa, Weligama, Pasgoda, Athuraliya and surrounding areas to be vigilant.(Darshana Sanjeewa)
