Government attention has been focused on restricting the entry of private vehicles into the city of Colombo.

The Minister of Passenger Transport Management Mahinda Amaraweera stated that as the number of vehicles entering the Colombo city limits is increasing day by day, the traffic congestion has become unmanageable.
