SLA camp closes segment of Point Pedro-Kodikaamam road

[TamilNet, Friday, 19 December 2008, 15:27 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has constructed a large base for its 52nd division enclosing a stretch of the Point Pedro-Kodikaamam road at Va’ra’ni, directing the public to use a sandy path through the coconut grove that runs parallel to the section of the main road closed to the public. Water-logged bypass road has become impassable to traffic, and is likely to force Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) and private bus owners to suspend services in the next few days, sources in Jaffna said.

Several organizations in Jaffna peninsula have appealed to the SLA authorities in Jaffna to permit the public to use the road blocked inside the SLA main base in Va’ra’ni area on Point Pedro-Kodikaamam road, the main entry to Themarraadchi from Vadamaraadchi.

The above trunk road is a busy route used by traders and the public in Vadamaraadchi and Thenmaraadchi in their daily activities.
