Rehabilitation of Mannar-Jaffna road begins

[TamilNet, Monday, 08 August 2005, 16:50 GMT]
Reconstruction of nine bridges on the 98 km long A-32 Navatkuli-Kerativu road connecting the districts of Mannar and Jaffna costing nearly 230 million rupees was initiated under the UK funded North East Bridges Reconstruction Programme (NEBRP). Of the nine bridges, seven are located in the areas controlled by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and two in government-controlled areas, sources said.

The A-32 has been neglected for over thirty years, sources said.

The Road Development Authority (RDA) is the implementing organization under the Ministry of Relief, Reconstruction and Reconciliation.

Two bridges each at Pallamadu, Illupaikadavai, Parayanaru and one at Sithi Aru in the LTTE held area are under construction. In the government controlled area one bridge each at Arippu and Aruviyaru are to be constructed, sources said.
