A new traffic plan will be in effect in Kandy from today to reduce the heavy traffic congestion in the city.
Speaking to Hiru news, Commissioner of the Kandy Municipal Council Chandana Tennakoon said the plan will be implemented as a pilot project.
Several unsuccessful traffic plans have been introduced previously to reduce the congestion.
However, the new traffic plan will be in effect following orders issued by Court. With the implementation of the new initiative, parking bans will be enforced along several roads and selected areas.
The Commissioner said several other plans will also be introduced concurrently under the new traffic plan.
