Inland Water Transport System

Inland Water Transport System

There will be new boat services to enhance west-west connectivity as well as to promote eco-tourism during night hours. Colombo has a pretty amazing but underused canal network. This phase of the project seeks to utilize these canals to provide a safe and comfortable mode of transport for the citizens of Colombo – at a cost of USD 125 million. The main outcome of this project is to reduce the commuting time which will benefit the economy and the commuters. Modern boats and ferries equipped with air conditioning will provide a safe commuter service between the canals hence the ferry service is expected to promote eco-tourism in Sri Lanka
