A special traffic plan has been launched in the area that surrounds Galle Face due to the rehearsals of the Victory Day Parade that have started.
Police Media Spokesman S.P Prishantha Jayakody said that the Galle road opposite the Galle Face green will be closed daily from 6.00am to 1.00pm until the 27th . He said that the stretch from Galle Face roundabout to Ceramic roundabout will be closed. The motorists using Galle road should therefore divert to the right from the Kollupitiya junction and proceed towards Colombo through the Pittala junction. Other light vehicles should turn to Macan Marker Mawatha from the Galle Face roundabout and proceed towards Slave Island to reach Colombo. The vehicles moving towards Galle can use Duplication Road to reach Galle Road. The traffic Police have been deployed to assist the motorists.
