Oct 07, Colombo: Sri Lanka Ministry of Defense and Urban Development has taken steps to develop the Bastian Street of Colombo city as a green environment under the city beautification project.
The development is now taking place along the busy street between the long distance bus stand in Pettah and the Colombo Fort railway station.
A floating market is also a part of the development.
Recent demolitions on the sides of the street have opened up the space to beautiful scenery.
Under the project, around 100 traders who are in the area will have stalls to sell local products.
