    These lorries are still existing... Unbelievable ... Govt must bring in new rules to check the condition of the vehicles before renewing the road tax.

    Could be an international conspiracy to tarnish the image of this Wonder of Asia.

    43 Sri, this could be more than 20 years old vehicle. These types of old vehicles' should not be allowed to run on the road, which makes traffic congestion during peak hours.

    This the nature of Indian vehicles

    then will you pay them to get newer vehicles? Don't talk nonsense man. These people are happy with what they have and at least put an effort into getting a job done...

    Hey Guys,

    @Prabath - Road Caved In Mate, this is to do with RDA / Contractor. Nothing to do with the lorry fella / lorry make.

    I can't understand why people are talking about the vehicle when it was an issue with the road? what does a vehicle have to do with the road caving. And if you look at the tarmac, it looks like there had been a caving there and got patched (look at the color of the tarmac). The vehicle has nothing to do with it people... Please read news before commenting...

    Prabath this is the nature of the SL roads

    Some people can't sleep without politics. This is a road and regulation problem that could have happened even in the USA.

    Stupidity of the people commenting on this page is unbelievable.

    This is not due to the fault of the lorry.

    This has happened due to the faulty road.

    Hey guys, Its not the vehicle but our roads. Please read the news properly. Looks like we'll have another cavity for years as it was in Wellawatta roxy colour lights.

    This is what our most Sri Lankan does, they dont look into the fact of the issue. They just give verdict on the victim.

    Unless we change our people it very difficult change anything...
