Kaduwela bridge restored to normalcy
Vehicular movement along the Kaduwela bridge has been restored to normalcy after the issue on the temporary bridge was rectified.
The bridge linking Kaduwela and Biyagama was closed for traffic from 8 p.m. yesterday (May 24), after one of the banks was washed away – thereafter a temporary bridge was constructed.
Construction of the temporary bridge took place throughout last night (May 24), and saw the involvement of more than 100 military personnel.
The construction was completed by this morning (May 25) and it was connected to the old bridge.
The bridge is 10 metre wide and 21 metres in length.
