SLA builds Nunavil supply route

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 04 June 2002, 21:10 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army is rapidly constructing a new road connecting Nunavil, located on the Jaffna-Kandy Road (A-9) in Chavakachcheri East, to the Maravanpulo Junction. The SLA is moving forces from parts of Chavacachcheri into a major new 100-acre base established at Nunavil, press reports said.

The new road cuts through paddy fields and is about 3 ˝ kilometres in length and is being constructed in two stages, with one portion of the road going from the Nunavil junction to the rail tracks, and the other going from the rail tracks to the Maravanpulo junction.

It is believed that the new road is to be the supply route to the SLA forces in Kerativu, Aruguveli and Maravanpulo. The Army’s new preparations are thought to be to avoid a repeat of the setbacks it faced when the LTTE landed in Aruguveli via the Jaffna lagoon in 2000.

Meanwhile, the SLA has begun moving troops from other areas in Chavakachcheri to the large newly constructed base in Nunavil, the Thinakural reported. Units in Kovil Puthukudiyiruppu and Kachchai have started moving into the base. SLA units have also vacated the premises of St. Licoria Church, and the Roam Catholic School south of Kachchai Road.
