Traffic lane law amended: Three-wheelers & motorcycles will get more space

Three- wheelers and motorcycles will be provided more space when enforcing the Traffic Lane Law from today, the Director of Motor Traffic and Road Safety of the Sri Lanka Police SSP Indika Hapugoda announced.

According to Ada Derana, SSP Hapugoda said on roads with four lanes the first two lanes from the left side will be allocated for buses, three-wheelers, and motorcycles.

On roads with three-lanes, the first lane from the left side which is the bus priority lane will be allocated for buses, while motorcycles and three-wheeler are also required to follow the same lane, but will be allowed to overtake buses using the adjoining lane on the right side.

SSP Indka Hapugoda said the new system is expected to allow three- wheelers, motorcycles and buses to ply on the roads without causing congestion for other vehicles.

The bus priority lane which was reintroduced on Monday (14) is being enforced for the fifth consecutive day today.

The traffic lane law was introduced centering the Sri Jayawardenapura Mawatha, Baseline Road, High Level Road, and Galle Road which face heavy traffic congestions on a daily basis.

Drones and CCTV cameras are being utilised to monitor vehicles and traffic congestions, while the Sri Lanka Air Force is assisting the Police in this regard.

The instructions issued this week for three-wheelers and motorcycles to follow the bus priority lane had reportedly caused inconvenience to several drivers.

SSP Indika Hapugoda said taking this into consideration, a new plan was introduced today to allocate more space to enable the easy travel of three-wheeler drivers and motorcyclists. (NewsWire)
