The separate bus lane, which was launched from Moratuwa to Colombo today, will be implemented around the island in stages.
Minister of Megapolis Patali Champika Ranawaka said the separate bus lane will help reduce the traffic congestion in Colombo and the surrounding areas.
He said that initially there may be some shortcomings as everyone looks to get used to the new system.
However he said eventually the system will settle down and a better traffic flow can be expected like what is seen overseas. (Colombo Gazette)
