Rajagiriya flyover vibrations: not a flaw, it is normal

Chairman of the Road Development Authority Nihal Suriyaarachchi confirmed that the vibrations felt on the Rajagiriya flyover is quite normal and in no way is it a defect in construction.

He made this comment as many media institutions published articles that went on to mislead the general public.

Elaborating on his comment Chairman Suriyaarachchi confirmed that the Rajagiriya flyover was built on cables and not concrete.

" It is scientifically proven that vibrations are usually felt in the construction of such projects. It is quite normal. I assure the general public that it is extremely safe to travel and all safety provisions and standards have been met in constructing the Rajagiriya flyover " he said.

The flyover was closed for approximately 1 1/2 hours yesterday the 10th of June 2018, as a standard inspection was carried out.

Chairman Suriyaarachchi urged media institutions to be more mindful when reporting news on sensitive news news such as this.
