Rs. 8m drainage system for People's Park

The Colombo Municipal Council (CMC ) has taken steps to initiate a storm water disposal improvement project at a cost of Rs. 8 million, covering the vicinity of People's Park, Gunasinghepura.

The Urban Development Authority (UDA) has agreed to provide funds and the whole drainage system will be rehabilitated under the project.

The MoU was signed between the CMC and UDA at a meeting presided by Municipal Commissioner Bhadrani Jayawardana last week.

UDA Director General Prasanna Silva and People's Park Traders ' Association representatives were represent.

Explaining the project, CMC Water Supply and Drainage Division Head S.G. V. D.H. Gunasekera told the Daily News that most of the building complexes specially those with basement facilities would need their own pumping equipment.

"But after studying the problem that had existed for over 20 years, a decision was taken by the UDA and the CMC to rehabilitate the drainage system as an improved infrastructure facility.

Gunasekera said the tender has been called to select a prospective tenderer, and priority will be given to a public sector construction organisation. Construction will commence thereafter.

He stressed the importance of a perfect town planning specially in establishing large building complexes for a sustainable city development.
