Loggal Oya railing work resumes

The incomplete guard rail.

Erecting a guard railing on the edge of the road along the Loggal Oya Mahaweli Reservoir dam has been resumed.

It was resumed following a few accidents to protect vehicles from falling over the edge into the reservoir.

A large part of the Badulla-Mahiyanganaya Road lies parallel to the irrigation canal, Mahaweli Maha Ela, aka ‘Viyaanaa Ela’ carrying water from the Loggal-Oya reservoir to the Mahaweli Zone C and the Mahaweli Zone B. A 4,650-metre-long guard rail is to be placed along the road through the project. Rs. 54,000,000 was allocated to set up the railing by the Road Development Authority (RDA).
