IDI team visits Trincomalee to identify district development needs

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 04 March 2003, 00:51 GMT]
The nine-member team of the Infrastructure Development Institute (IDI) of Japan, which is on a fact-finding mission in the northeast province since February 28, visited Trincomalee Monday. The IDI team held wide ranging discussions with central and provincial level officials in the Trincomalee district at the North East Health Ministry Auditorium Monday morning, sources said.

Local government and provincial officials brought to the notice of the IDI team the urgent need for rehabilitating the abandoned Trincomalee- Batticaloa road which is in the south of the district.

Proposals to rebuild the Trincomalee-Pulmoddai road up to Kokulai in the north of the district and to implement a water supply scheme using Mahaweli water to meet the future demand in the Trincomalee district were also suggested to the IDI team for their study, sources said.

The IDI team which is supported by the Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport visited Jaffna, Killinochchi, Mannar and Vavuniya last week.

The IDI team will submit its report regarding the urgent needs for the northeast province regarding development of roads, sanitation, infrastructure and flood control activities to the Government of Japan, sources said.
