Flyover built in 67 days ; repairs take over 6 months Featured

The renovation of the flyover at Pattiya Handiya in Kelaniya will be completed only in August, says UDA chairman Nihal Suriyarachchi.

It took 67 days to construct this bridge, but the UDA has kept one lane closed for more than six months now.

The chairman says the nails of the flyover had broken, and have to be replaced after drilling in new places.

However, reports reaching Sri Lanka Mirror say the contractor has recruited drug addicts as the labourers, who go missing after half a day’s work.

He has obtained their services as others are unwilling to engage in the work, which is considered risky.
