Two dry ports for Colombo

by E. Weerapperuma

Two Dry Ports are to be set up at Ragama and Ratmalana to regulate container operations.This step will avoid congestion and many other obstacles on public roads. The authorities plan to move the containers by train to the two dry ports.

It will also provide added revenue to the Sri Lanka Railways Department. Once the project comes into operation, container transport on public roads will be prohibited completely.

It is hoped that the project would be an ideal solution to the traffic jams. The congestion on roads thwart development work as time and energy is wasted on roads.

Transport Ministry sources said World Bank Country Director Peter Harrold and Transport Minister Felix Perera discussed the project earlier this week. Ministry sources said they were optimistic that their proposals would be included in the World Bank Development program for Sri Lanka in the ensuing year.
