More space for tuks & motorcycles under traffic lane law – Police
Steps will be taken to allocate more space to three-wheelers and motorcycles which now have been restricted to the bus priority lane, says SSP Indika Hapugoda, the Director of the Traffic Control and Road Safety Division.
Accordingly, on four-lane roads, the first and second lanes from the left will be assigned for buses, three-wheelers and motorcycles.
Further, on three-lane roads, buses will move on the first lane from the left, however, three-wheelers and motorcycles will be allowed to move or overtake from the second lane from the left.
This new move is expected to facilitate space for other vehicles to travel without congestion, SSP Hapugoda added.
It is reported that three-wheeler drivers and motorcyclists have complained that they have been inconvenienced by being restricted to the bus priority lane.
Taking this into account, the Police decided to allocate more space to the three-wheelers and motorcycles.
The traffic lane law including the bus priority lane rule is in effect for the fifth consecutive day today on the Sri Jayewardenepura Mawatha, Baseline Road, High Level Road and Galle Road.
Police have made use of the drones belonging to the Sri Lanka Air Force as well as CCTV cameras to monitor the movement of vehicles.

I use a motor cycle to travel to work.
The daily commute, one way, was 30 mins.
Now, the daily commute, one way, is 2 1/2 hrs.
The picture above gives the reason.
Don’t they plan anything before implement it.
What a disaster.
The rich zoom in the free lanes while the poor crawl.
