The Dehiwela flyover was built at enormous cost and in double-quick time so it could be declared open during the election campaign.
This flyover serves no purpose. The main reason for putting up a flyover is to reduce traffic congestion, but clearly this is not happening in Dehiwela.
Vehicle accidents at peak time are a frequent occurrence at the Dehiwela junction.
It would be interesting to see what happens if the bus halts are moved away from the bridge, even as a temporary measure.
There is bound to be a difference.
