    How many days or hours will it take? If so, will the time permit for the passengers to enjoy the said facilities?

    E.B-------- WHEN NORTH EAST GET EIQUAL RIGHTS THEN YOUR
    IDEA OK. ATHER WISE , A TREAME.

    i think the whole idea is to decentralise the economy from colombo. we need commercial capitals for each region in the country. this is a great plan if executed well.
    trinco is one of the most beautiful places in the country, and on earth.
    the govt should be encouraged to build infrastructure in all regions so people and businesses can flourish anywhere in the country.

    Just what Sri lanka needs!. watch the Ministers and families queueing up to get a free ride.

    Sammy Thursday, 12 May 2011 05:56 AM

    Isn't it too short a distance for luxury cruising?

    Sanjaya Thursday, 12 May 2011 04:39 AM

    Since it's coming from Chennai, Trinco is much attractive than Colombo.

    kanda Wednesday, 11 May 2011 10:11 PM

    instead of doing these luxury thing.. feed the startving people in chennai and lanka.. do not just focus on money making

    Brenan Thursday, 12 May 2011 04:17 AM

    Totally agreee........

    Brenan Thursday, 12 May 2011 04:17 AM

    It doesnt cost to let a ship coming in , we dont do sevice and repairs they only bring revenue to our country....common sense yaar

    ajith Thursday, 12 May 2011 03:55 AM

    Very good move to boost business and tourism..
    Would be ideal if Colombo too will be Considered.
    An ideal alternate to costly air travel.

    pari Thursday, 12 May 2011 03:43 AM

    should the idea not be to provide basic transport facilties between the two, close proximity countries!

    A lottery win for smugglers !

    Thoman Thursday, 12 May 2011 01:03 AM

    Indian tourist and Indian Spices are invading Trincomalee. Watch it's going to be a state in a state in a unitary country.(only name sake). Very soon you will not understand who is ruling the country Indians or Chinese.

    Einstein Thursday, 12 May 2011 01:01 AM

    Why Trinco?

    Colombo will give it more business.

    and what is a spar?

    Nihal Wednesday, 11 May 2011 10:01 PM

    Any idea of cost and if return is also available
