Earth removal from earthslip prone location for new construction! Featured

Earth is being removed using heavy machinery near Wheels Lanka building facing the Kandy-Katugastora road.

The RDA rebuilt a flight of stairs leading to the houses nearby after the widening of the A-9 highway.

Now, a certain group has misled the area residents and officials with a promise to build a road instead.

Their aim is to flatten a slope there to construct a building and to build an access road.

The slope is around half a km long between Mahaiyyawa tunnel and Kandy-Katugastota road.

The Geological Survey and Mines Board at Peradeniya declared the area to be prone to earthslips and recommended against any earth removal.

The government relocated several families from the vicinity as well.

No permission has been obtained for this earth removal from the relevant state agencies.

Furthermore, concrete has been laid to cover the canal between the Mahaiyyawa tunnel and the Wattarantenna junction to construct a building.

Area residents have written to the president against this.
