Sri Lanka plans bus terminal for new expressway
17 Jun, 2011 14:51:04
June 17, 2011 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's government has invited private bus operators to start services on the island's first expressway set to open by end-July with a terminal to connect other routes planned close to the capital.
Private transport services minister C B Ratnayake said the government expects to have 10 air-conditioned luxury buses plying on the southern expressway initially.

The government has called for expressions of interest from private bus operators to run the new service, he told a forum on transport.

A 1.5 acre block of land has also been identified for a private bus terminal at the Makumbura, Kottawa interchange south of Colombo, he said.

This will provide connecting services for passengers on the expressway to travel to Colombo and other destinations.

Oh, great! Now the buses can stop in the middle of the Expressway too.

Dear God, this "Expressway" is going to look worse than a slaughter house.

Licences should be given to a company and NOT individuals. The company should be responsible for the buses, maintaining the time table, and inspectors. It should have its own workshop and depot. If it does not meet requirements, its licence should not be renewed.
