Ada Derana correspondents confirm that the Kandy-Colombo main road has been obstructed at Ganetenna due to a protest march in Mawanella by residents of the area.
The protest has been conducted due to the negligence of local authoritarians who have not repaired several areas of the main road in Ganetenna causing severe hindrances to residents of the area.
It was also reported that Minister Kabir Hashim has been informed of the dilapidated road and that no response was provided to the written request sent to him to repair the road.
Motorists have been advised to utilize alternate routes bypassing the area to avoid traffic congestion.
