More space for tuks & motorcycles under traffic lane law – Police


Steps will be taken to allocate more space to three-wheelers and motorcycles which now have been restricted to the bus priority lane, says SSP Indika Hapugoda, the Director of the Traffic Control and Road Safety Division.

Accordingly, on four-lane roads, the first and second lanes on the left will be assigned for buses, three-wheelers and motorcycles.

Further, on three-lane roads, buses will move on the first lane from the left. Buses will meanwhile be allowed to overtake from the second lane from the left.

This new move is expected to facilitate space for other vehicles to travel without congestion, SSP Hapugoda added.

The traffic lane law including the bus priority lane rule are in effect for the fifth consecutive day today.
