By Cyril Wimalasurendre

KANDY: The one-way traffic system on Peradeniya Road and William Gopallawa Mawatha, Kandy implemented about a fortnight ago was scrapped yesterday (21).

Kandy Mayor Sena Dissanayake, asked for reason for the sudden return to the old system said Kandy Municipal Council being a democratic institution had to heed opposition to the one-way traffic system imposed with good intention to ease the traffic congestion as an experiment.

The majority of those who raised objections to the one-way traffic flow were traders.

Traders on Peradeniya road had claimed that they suffered heavy losses owing to the one-way traffic scheme, Mayor Sena Dissanayake said.
