The President conducts an observation of the new bridge constructed across the Kumbukkan Aaru.

The new bridge that was constructed across the Kumbukkan Aaru, came under the observation of President Maithripala Sirisena, today.  The Kumbukkan Aaru flows through the Laksha Uyana village in Polonnaruwa and reaches the Mahaweli River, near the Somaawathee region. The bridge was constructed at a cost of 1.3 billion rupees under the "Pibidemu Polonnaruwa District Development Programme". Significantly, this newly constructed bridge was bestowed with the public at a serene ceremony held yesterday without any special invitees. It was declared open by a group of children amidst the chanting of Seth Pirith by the Maha Sangha.
