Those travelling on the Colombo – Avissawella road found themselves looking for alternative routes after the stretch which runs parallel to the Salawa Army Base was shut down for vehicular traffic yet again as a result of public opposition.

At present the houses are being cleaned and electricity cables are being laid.

Meanwhile, Army Spokesperson Brigadier Jayanath Jayaweera explained the future course of action regarding the army base.

Brig. Jayanath Jayaweera said:

Taking all this into consideration the camp will be rebuilt in the exact same location. Just because the camp is lost, the military presence will not reduce in that area.

The brigadier said however that the ammunition dump will not be rebuilt.
