The Government has directed its attention towards charging a fee from vehicles that enter Colombo. The Ministry of Passenger Transport Management said that the aim behind this would be to reduce the excess flow of vehicular traffic into Colombo.
The Ministry points out that, since the vehicular traffic within Colombo seems to be on the rise each day, it is becoming increasingly difficult to control the said traffic. The Ministry also notes that this is detrimental to the environment as well.
Therefore, taking these matters into consideration, attention has been drawn towards categorizing vehicles and charging a toll from each vehicle that enters Colombo.
