Jul 5, 2010 6:54:54 AM - itnnews.lk

The Malwatte Mahanayake is not averse to the reopening of the Dalada Veediya as a solution to easing traffic congestion in the Kandy City.

The Dalada Veediya Highway was shut down with a terrorist attack on the Sri Dalada Maligawa in 1998. The need for the reopening of this stretch of road surfaced as a solution to heavy traffic congestion and air pollution within the City. \

The Malwatte Mahanayake, the Most Ven. Thibbotuwawer Sri Sumangala thera gave his nod to the opening of this road as a result of the talks conducted with him by a group of persons including the Acting Mayor of Kandy.
