Aug 15, Colombo: Hatton-Colombo main road is currently blocked at Watawala due to an earth slide completely halting traffic, Watawala Police said.

Watawala Police say the earth slide has occurred at around 3pm this afternoon (15), due to the recent heavy rainfall in the Western slopes of the Central highlands.

Police request motorists to use the Diyagala Norton Bridge road in Ginigathhena until the earth mound is removed. Police warn of further risks of earth slides occurring in the same area.
