A transit camp constructed at a cost of 61 million rupees in Habarana along Trincomalee-Kandy road by the Industrial development Ministry ensuring safety stay for soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army and Sri Lanka Navy traveling to and from eastern province to other areas in the south was handed over to the Defense Ministry last week. 102 sailors of the Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) died in a suicide bomb attack on 16th October 2006 when large numbers of SLA and SLN troopers working in east were staying at a site in Habarana to change buses to travel to their villages

Thereafter the government took steps to establish a transit camp which could accommodate about 1000 persons at a time on a fifteen acre plot of land at Habarana with all security measures for security personnel working in the eastern province, media sources said.

Sunil Sirisena, Additional Defense Ministry Secretary took charge of the new transit camp at an event held last week
