Rehabilitation of the Neluwa–Lankagama road

1 November, 2020

 The rehabilitation of the Neluwa–Lankagama road, which has been a long-standing need for the people in the isolated village of Lankagama in the Sinharaja Forest range, is in its final lap. The road will be completed within 90 days under President Gotabaya Rajapaksa's directive. President Rajapaksa reiterated his intention to fulfill the needs of the people without harming the environment when he visited the village late August. Hence, 2,100 new saplings will be added to the reserve following the opening of the new road that will also replace a rickety hanging-bridge with a permanent one.
