World Bank Funds Kandy Transport Infrastructure
The Kandy Municipal Council (KMC) is launching a major reorganization of Kandy public transport infrastructure with the assistance of the World Bank that is providing a loan of over Rs12,000 million to the city for infrastructure development. The loan is channeled through the General Treasury.
The town will have three satellite bust stations in Getembe or Gannoruwa in the southwest, Manikumbura in the north and Thannekumbura in the east respectively. The Bogambara bus park will be removed and the land used to develop the Bogambara sports complex. It is likely that a swimming pool and a pavilion will come up on the land.
After the three satellite bus stations are established only long distant buses will be allowed to come to the city centre. All other buses will stop at the satellite stations and passengers will have to use a shuttle service to reach the city.
The KMC will also shortly introduce parking meters for street parking in the city centre. The maintenance of the KMC car park is to be contracted out to a private company to improve facilities and service.
