State Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Ashoka Abeysinghe stated that a special program has been launched to minimize the congestion that could develop around the Katunayake airport after the Bohra Conference.

More than 23,000 people from the Bohra community spanning across 40 countries are participating in the conference, which will be held at the Bohra Mosque near the Bambalapitiya Railway Station from 1st to 10th September.

There was a congestion in the aircraft ramp since several special aircrafts carrying the Bohra community came in to the island.

Police have taken steps to implement a special traffic plan from Colpetty to Dehiwela and around Moratuwa due to the Bohra Conference.

However, commuters stated that there is heavy traffic congestion in the surrounding areas. The people also mentioned that there are no parking facilities in the Colpetty- Dehiwela areas.

Police are requesting the public to use alternative routes to ease the traffic congestion in the area.
