Night shopping bazaar for Magampura
A night shopping bazaar with 300 boutique stalls will be constructed
opposite the Magampura Ruhunu International Convention Centre (MRICC).
The Urban Development Authority (UDA) has drawn up the plan for the
proposed project. The construction work will be monitored by the
Hambantota Municipal Council, Hambantota Assistant Government Agent Y.K.
Shiromi Jeewamala told the Sunday Observer.
She said that a flyover will also be constructed along the
Mirijjawila-Sooriyawewa road close to the Mirijjawila Botanical Garden.
The Government has developed all facilities including a road network
in the district. Some development projects which were launched last year
are progressing, Jeewamala said.
She said that the Mirijjawilaa-Sooriyawewa road (Adi 100 road),
Meegahajangura-Gonnoruwa, Chithragala alternative road, Pitathara
Roundabout road and the airport entrance road are being widened. Lands
are being acquired by the RDA to widen the roads.
A large number of people lost business when the Hambantota harbour
project was launched as it was within the project area along the
Tangalle-Tissamaharama road. They will be given lands in close proximity
to the shopping complex.
