    Due to the expansion few may suffer with loosing their land but all will be benifitted by the developement. But if the people will compensated accordingly, Govt should proceed without caring the protest. Otherwise country will stay in the same place for ever without any developement.

    [Colombo Airport (BIA) is one of the best airports in the region ]

    What are the other best airports in the region? none. BIA is a yet another lousy airport.

    For the past 15 years, Slanka has remained so under SLFP governments. Nothing but COL has developed during the past 15 years.

    I thought some jokers decided to build the next generation airport in the Far South. What is the status of this crazy plan?

    Myanmar , Bangladesh. Nepal, as the comparable countries to show the advantage of BIA.Sri Lankan has progress well beyond the expectations surpassing thees giants. Singapore . HonKong , Thailand, Malaysia should be the comparison.

    Those who have seen the airports in the above countries know BIA is a far cry.

    If above countries don`t maintain and upgrade their facilities and if Slanka continues to upgrade its facilities regularly, in another 100 years, perhaps BIA would be nearer to the airports in those countries.

    Until then, BIA is a backyard.
