Fri, Nov 26, 2021, 12:42 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 26, Colombo: Sri Lanka Navy has made arrangements to provide safe passenger transport service at the Kurinchankerny bridge commencing from yesterday (25th November).

The residents in the area will be able to use this mode of transportation until the construction of the Kurinchankerny Bridge in Kinniya, Trincomalee is completed, the Navy Media Unit said.

Following the directives of Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Nishantha Ulugetenne this initiative was set in motion taking into account the difficulties faced by the residents and school children, crossing the lagoon on a daily basis, due to the construction of the Kurinchankerny Bridge.

Accordingly, the Navy deployed a Lagoon Craft capable of carrying 25 passengers safely at a time, effective from 25th November, under the supervision of the Eastern Naval Command.

The Lagoon Craft will be in service from 7.00 a.m. to 8.00 a.m. and from 12.00 noon to 2.00 p.m. each day. Further, the Navy erected a temporary jetty to allow passengers to board the vessel safely.
