The number of people visiting Upper Kotmale to view the hydropower plant exceeds 300,000.
During the past few days a large number of people came to view the final hydro power plant and the longest tunnel that has been built so far in the country. Hundreds of thousands of people are reported to be responding to an invitation extended by the President when he inaugurated the power plant on the 04th of this month.
Meanwhile more days have been allocated for the public to view the power plant and the tunnel, responding to a people’s request. Accordingly five days have been set apart from the 17th of this month for public view. The authorities have taken measures to open two more access roads in addition to the Talawakele road.
