The road network which was seriously damaged by the torrential rains in the past has been restored.
The main road network was dilapidated by the adverse weather experienced in the entire country about one and a half months back. However, the Government was successful in repairing the damaged road within a short span of time. Immediate repairs are being effected to roads in several other areas. Many roads in the North Western, North Central, Eastern and Northern Provinces were heavily impacted by the torrential rainfall. Roads in many areas of these Provinces have been carpeted and repaired. Several stretches of the Road running through Polgahawala, Alawwa, Madagalla, Ibbagamuwa, Melsiripura, Dambulla, Medawachchiya and Vavuniya to the North had been reconstructed. The public experienced many difficulties due to the damage inflicted by the adverse weather to the road network.
