    "Commission money" each time new spares are ordered to replace the corroded spare parts.

    Simple solution for the Sri Lanka government. Fill the sea as done near Galle Face. Who care about the cost. The tax payer picks up the tab.

    These things happen thanks to lethargic top level bureaucrats of the Dept of Sand Conservation.If there are commissions available yes,they are very smart on there duties.

    NO NO should give up the land to the sea and make a harbor, Bring the sea water in. Our population is increasing and going to live on the seawater.
