ri Lanka’s first monorail, carrying passengers from Fort to Battaramulla through the existing roadways of Maradana, Borella, Rajagiriya and beyond, is expected soon. Prof. Saman Bandara of the University of Moratuwa said it is imperative and long overdue that a mass mode of transportation be introduced to carry millions into and out of the city of Colombo. The demand that traffic was making on the roads of Colombo and its suburbs was increasing every year.
