    What about loud horns, is that not noise pollution to the public, there was an effort some time ago to reduce the number of horns on a bus, cannot the minister hear this

    johan Wednesday, 25 December 2019 09:06 AM

    The minister will not hear any outside sound because he is using air conditioned luxurious vehicle,Air conditioned House and air conditioned office room

    It will not work. The private bus operators are like the mafia. They are so powerful that makes it difficult for the authorities to monitor.

    Classical Music?

    Kingsley Wijesinhe Wednesday, 25 December 2019 08:21 AM

    A positive step. But why not have no music at all? Loud classical music could be just as much a nuisance as loud pop.

    common man Wednesday, 25 December 2019 08:31 AM

    Noise pollution is every where. from Ice cream seller to temples. There is a Supreme court ruling to warn such people and if continued confesicate the equipments. Do our law enforcement do theier solaman duty?

    ksm Thursday, 26 December 2019 12:39 AM

    you mentioned temples but the most noise comes from mosques that too 5 times a day.

    Very good decision if implemented and maintain properly.

    Nafeel Nawas Wednesday, 25 December 2019 08:52 AM

    Good move sir, today morning I reached colombo with disappointment due to loud music.This should be implemented.

    Jude Fernando Wednesday, 25 December 2019 08:56 AM

    We always hear of decisions made to start on January 1st. Sadly these never happen or even if these do, forgotten very soon. Let's see if this is something different!

    Anmanpan Wednesday, 25 December 2019 09:12 AM

    Heard this story 99 times and the music is getting louder and louder.

    sunil vijaya Thursday, 26 December 2019 01:47 AM

    ban altogether all sound(audio) in buses - idiots allow now classical music! classic brains of our stupid politicians

    Kumar Thursday, 26 December 2019 02:05 AM

    Too little too late. Most likely most Sri Lankans are deaf to higher frequencies by now.
