    Who cares about Colombo anymore. The only city this government recognises in Sri Lanka is HAMBANTOTA. So...if Hambantota is not under water....who cares???

    UDA will fix it next time. With strict orders.

    Good for contractors. They can start digging roads again to put drainage lines.

    There is a pond during rainy days in the Galle Road soon after passing Wadiyamankada junction near Kalutara. I feel the RDA is busy with constructing highways but highly used roads like Galle road is not maintained properly...
