Signs of sinkholes along Colombo - Hatton main road

A section of the Colombo - Hatton main road in the Kuyilwatta area in Watawala is at the risk of being caving in.

In this backdrop, traffic has been restricted to a single lane.

When signs of a caving in initially appeared after recent heavy rains in the area, officials of the Road Development Authority had made repairs, but in vain.

National Building Research Organisation has also confirmed that several places along the Colombo - Hatton main road from Kuyilwatta area to the Standardwatta area are at the risk of caving in.
