Lower Kadugannawa section of Colombo-Kandy main road temporarily shut for hazardous rock removal

June 09, Colombo (LNW): The lower Kadugannawa section of the Colombo-Kandy main road will be closed temporarily due to the ongoing removal of hazardous rocks along the route, the Disaster Management Centre (DMC) said.

According to DMC Director Pradeep Kodippili, the closure of the road is essential to ensure the safety of motorists.

Whilst the inconvenience the move might cause to the public is understood, vehicle drivers are encouraged to seek alternative routes until the work is completed, Kodippili noted.

The DMC advises drivers travelling from Colombo to Kandy to consider using the Colombo-Kurunegala Highway, accessing Kandy via the Galagedara Road through Rambukkana.

Alternatively, drivers can opt for the Gampola-Kandy Road through Hemmathagama and Mawanella.
