Over to you Chairman Panadura UC
Sri Maha Vihara Road, Panadura is perhaps the only road in this area
that has been utterly neglected for over a long period of time. Not only
the road is full of potholes, its drains on either side are also broken
and dilapidated. Apart from the residential houses on both sides, there
is also a popular Montessori facing this road.
During rainy weather, residents face two major problems. One is that
they cannot walk on this road without getting wet and or falling on the
The other is that the unbuilt and broken drains overflow into the
gardens of people making living hazardous for them.
This is not a problem unknown to the Panadura Urban Council (UC). The
UC is situated a short distance from this neglected road. What they do
is when a resident complaints at the UC some labourers come and dig up
the drain in front of his house and go away.
This is a short road. Why cannot the UC at least clean up the drains
on both sides, so that the water would not spill over to our gardens?
This is a matter that could be put to right by the UC, if they really
want to do it.

Over to you Chairman Dehiwela-Mount Lavinia MC and Chairman RDA
The flooding of S.D.S. Jayasinghe Mawatha, Nugegoda has been a severe
problem to all establishments and residences in the area.
In spite of several meetings with the relevant authorities, no action
has been taken so far to bring the situation under control.
The Chairman Dehiwela-Mount Lavinia Municipal Council and Chairman
RDA and EE (Western Province) please take necessary action to solve this
It is disheartening to know, that the public have to pay the price
for the inefficiency of the authorities concerned. Donâ€™t we deserve a
better service for payment of taxes and rates on time?
We therefore request you to kindly direct this problem to those
responsible for relevant action to be taken without further delay. We
extend our deep gratitude to the Daily News, for coming forward to
highlight the problems faced by the frustrated general public.
