    Mahadev,

    Please be silent when GOSL is going to do something to country. Every body likes to go to Jaffna by roads. If you dont like neglect the news.

    There is no time to do a proper survey at this stage as road is more important. Preliminary survey is more than sufficient to commence work. GOSL could award design & built contracts to local cpmpanies to avoid longer duration take for design.

    Lets hope this will be first only used for SLDF transport.. rather than civilians.. for until proper security is established.. even though mines are cleared.. if small groups of LTTE carders infiltrate they might cause a lot of harm to civilians.. specially in the recently cleared areas.. even if there is troop transport there should be with proper security measures and armed conveys...but all in all it is a huge advantage to both civilians and forces to open up a land route to jaffna...

    Why people always have to complain, even when there is some positive news for a change? This road is a high priority and has been identified as such by the GOSL.

    [based on a proper survey???

    or based on the commission to be shared!???]

    It`s not hard, there have been many road constructions lately in SL, the RDA can always give you a rough estimate of the cost.

    You have to thank the Government for acting quickly on these projects.

    Gaja and MahaDev are typical people live in this country, don`t appreciate good things and always critical. If they are Tamils I don`t blame as it is in their veins. Even in India, Tamils are like this. Complain, complain, petitions, petitions, etc. Never be happy with what they have, don`t know how to satisfy these people!!

    Gaja,

    [For what purposes??? - so you can have a gossip tour?]

    you have failed to understand the advantage of a land route to jaffna via pooneryn... therefore I suggest you take a look at the Sri Lanka map again and then question your self to see the advantages of a land route to Jaffna,and what importance it holds to everyone...
