RDA and W. A. Silva Mawatha
The Road Development Authority commenced widening W. A. Silva Mawatha nearly three years ago. This work is never ending.
Many buildings were demolished for this purpose. The road is full of debris with heaps and heaps of earth and bricks. All the trees have been cut. Scorching sun of the mid-day is unbearable like in the Arabian desert. This is a big environmental disaster. The entire area is full of dust. The residents are suffering. They are subject to coughs, colds and respiratory diseases. Small children contract asthma.
The electricity and telephone poles have not been shifted thus far. There are open pits and manholes everywhere. Hence, the road is dangerous as there are so many death traps.
We accept that the government is doing something useful. However, everybody will be happy if the road work is completed fast.
Over to you Chairman, Road Development Authority. Kindly consider our
plight and complete the road project soon. Do not delay it. Do not prolong it. Also please
plant some shady trees to compensate for the trees uprooted by your Authority.
