    Eheliyagoda Town to be Developed as a major city

    July 21, 2014

    Eheliyagoda Town has been identified as a priority town to be developed under the Small and Medium Town Development Programme which conducted by the Ministry of Defence and Urban Development.

     

    City beatifications, development of a Public Fair and a Play Ground have been identified as projects to be implemented under this programme.

     

    Eheliyagoda Town is a major gate way to Ratnapura District form Colombo.

     

    According to government's Small and Medium Town Development Programme, a large number of small and medium mini towns are scheduled to be developed from each District including Eheliyagoda in the Ratnapura District. These include towns such as Imaduwa and Akuressa in Galle, Urubokka in Matara, Narammala and Panduwasnuwara in Kurunegala, Dankotuwa and Naththandiya in Puttalam, as well as Mannar, Haputale and Diyatalawa.

     

    These are towns that have long been neglected, and their infrastructure and public spaces will be significantly revamped. This will create a much-improved living environment in these town areas. An example of a very successful project of this nature has been the upgrading of Matara, which is being rapidly developed. Another is Nuwara Eliya; particularly in the areas surrounding Lake Gregory, the transformation that has been achieved is quite remarkable.
