GSMB Chairman Kithsiri Dissanayake said that an official will be appointed to ensure the construction of the Financial City dos not harm the environment.
He said that the suspension of the project for several months after it began, had resulted in massive rock stones placed around the project site being washed into the sea.
Dissanayake said this has threatened marine life and the movements of ships to the Colombo port which is close to the project site.
The GSMB Chairman said that measures will be taken to remove the rock stones and ensure the construction takes place in line with the agreement between the parties concerned without damaging the environment. (Colombo Gazette)
