Although millions were spent on reconstructing the Mullaitivu-Kokkavil Main Road, within the last four years it has once again fallen into ruin, especially during the heavy rains experienced in the region.

The affected people have appealed to the authorities about transport difficulties on that road.

People also complained that around 500 families make use of this road daily. However, the road has remained damaged for the past four years. "The main cause of damage to the road is the transportation of sand using heavy vehicles. Resources of this area are destroyed and no development activities have been implemented during recent days," people said.
