Two new filling stations have been built for the convenience of civilians in the North.
Minister Susil Premajayantha opened these two stations with the intention of expanding and streamlining fuel distribution in the North. One filling station has come up at Omanthai on the A-9 Highway while the other has been built at Rambakulum along the Vavuniya–Kebithigollewa road. Large groups frequent these roads following the peaceful climate prevailing in the Northern region. Among them are local as well as foreign tourists. The new filling stations will solve problems encountered in obtaining fuel.
