Relocation soon after report

4 October, 2020

Residents of Rajaela, Pasiyawewa, Bobula and Minneriya, who are experiencing subsidence and cracks in houses will be relocated soon after finalising a report from the National Building Research Organisation (NBRO), Polonnaruwa District Secretary, W.A. Dharmasiri told the Sunday Observer yesterday. Sixty seven houses in the area have been identified as high risk settlements in an initial report compiled by the NBRO. The second investigation will provide guidelines for the relocation of residents.

“We have proposed the Disaster Management Ministry to provide houses on rent for the people who live in these high risk settlements as a temporary solution,” W.A. Dharmasiri said.
