President Maithripala Sirisena inspected the new Bridge constructed across Kumbukkan-Aruwa in Polonnaurwa.
The new Bridge has been built replacing the bridge constructed by local as well as foreign irrigation engineers and was in a dilapidated condition. The old bridge had been constructed during the era in which farmer colonies were launched. Even though the people were having hopes of a new bridge it did not become a reality. But their desires were realized under the Pibidemu Polonnaruwa District Development programme launched by President Maithripala Sirisena. People of many villages in the environs will benefit. The cost incurred on the construction of the bridge was 133.1 million rupees.
The President who engaged in an inspection visit at the location in which the bridge was built exchanged pleasantries with the people of the area.
The President also meanwhile joined in viewing the Perahera organized by the children of the Polonnaruwa Royal College marking the school’s 53rd anniversary.
