Southern Highway: Another bridge in danger

Several concrete slabs of the bridge on the Southern Highway built at the entrance to Narawala Walawatte, Poddala gave way and fell yesterday triggering panic among villagers that the bridge was on the verge of caving in.

A recent study following the collapse of a bridge revealed that several bridges would have to be demolished and re-built due to the poor quality of construction.
