President will declare open the new Laggala town tomorrow

A new town has been built in view of the old Laggala town that was submerged due to the Moragahakanda Kalu Ganga Project. President Maithripala Sirisena will vest this new village in the public tomorrow. Government buildings established in the new town will be opened by the respective Ministers.
The new Laggala town is a fully fledged town. It is being endowed to the Rajarata people by the President realizing their dreams. This largest multipurpose project built after four decades is another product of the Moragahakanda Kaluganga Reservoir Project.
The new Laggala town has been built on behalf of three thousand families that were displaced due to the Laggala town that was submerged by the Project. The new Laggala town has been constructed in a well-planned manner considering the needs of the future. The total investment made was 4500 million rupees. The entire town spans 75 acres. It comprises a new Police Station, a Unit Management Office, A cooperative Building Complex, a Pradeshiya Sabha building, a Divisional Secretariat, peoples fair and a pubic market complex. The new Laggala town also has a new bus stand and a Post Office as well as 26 state institutions including banks and financial institutions.
112 buildings have been built for these state establishments. The cost incurred was 2043 million rupees. It also has social economic infrastructure while the rural road network has been expanded. The removal of garbage is being done on a new strategy crafted with the support of the Peradeniya University. The new Laggala town links with the Girandurukotte Mahiyangana Road via the Dambulla, Matale, Naula, Moragahakanda, Pallegama and the Wasgamuwa National Park. Many state and private investments will reach due to the main road network that directly links with the Dambulla town. Noteworthy is the reduction of travel time from four and a half hours to one and a half hours when travelling from the Matale town to Laggala town. Another specialty is the selection of the land concerned for the building of the town by the people of the area themselves.
Natural resources have been fully used in the planning of the new town.
The highest compensation has been paid to the people who had lost their property due to the Moragahakanda Kaluganga Project. The President had personally mediated in this process. Compensation totaling more than 11 thousand million rupees had been paid
In addition to the compensation each family has been given a half acre of land and an extent of one and a half acre of paddy land.
Accordingly the new Laggla town that is to be opened tomorrow will be a model to the entire country.
