SLA closes Achchuveali-Tho'ndaimaanaa'ru road again

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 31 August 2010, 05:32 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) occupying Jaffna Friday closed Achchuveali-Tho'ndaimaanaa'ru road located at the outskirt of SLA High Security Zone (HSZ) in Valikaamam North for public use causing people to travel long distance spending more time to reach their destinations, sources in Jaffna said. The said road which had been closed fifteen years ago by SLA had been recently opened for public use with the beginning of the annual festivals of Chellach Channithi Murukan temple located on the shores of Tho'ndaimaanaa'ru lagoon.

Achchuveali-Tho'ndaimaanaa'ru road lies to the north of SLA HSZ along Tho'ndaimaanaa'ru lagoon.

People travelling form Thampaanai are stopped and turned away at Idaikkaadu and those from Tho'ndaimaanaa'ru are turned away at Tho'ndaimaanaa'ru bridge.

People travelling to places including Valvai are forced to take circuitous alternate roads causing them inconvenience and delay.
