The NBRO has taken steps to implement a special programme to prevent landslides from occurring in close proximity to main roads.

Director of the NBRO Asiri Karunawardhana said that this programme will be brought to effect with funds from the World Bank and JICA.

The main focus is to identify the main roads where landslides had occurred and where they may occur in the future.

The director said that they will direct their attention to areas such as the 18 bend road and the Haggala area in this regard. He said that this programme will be implemented with the assistance of the Road Development Authority.
