One-way traffic plan in Maradana

By Aisha Nazim

The roads near the Maradana Bridge to Technical Junction and the one from the Sangaraja Roundabout, which leads to Maradana again, will be made one-way today (29) and tomorrow (30), police said.

According to police sources, the roads are to be closed as part of a rehearsal to acclimatize drivers before making the aforementioned routes permanently one-way.

The roads are to be made one way from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday.
“This is just to get a general idea on how the traffic flows and to identify the differences it would make, if we make the roads one-way. We hope to make these routes one-way as well, just like what is done in the Colpetty area. However, we cannot make roads one-way overnight, people need to get used to it. Therefore, we’re making it one-way over the weekend, so that drivers will gradually get used to it, and in order to avoid confusion,” the police said.

According to the police, the purpose of making the routes one-way is to reduce the traffic congestion in the area, Ceylon Today learns.
