Vavuniya old bus stand closed down (pics) Featured

The old bus stand in Vavuniya town has been closed since midnight yesterday (31) on an order by northern province chief minister and transport minister C.V. Vigneswaran.

The Vavuniya urban council has barricaded the place with barrels and also given it police protection.

Its closure is pursuant to a court order, after SLTB bus workers refused to park their vehicles at the newly-constructed bus stand.

The new bus stand, built at a cost of Rs. 20 million, was opened on 17 January last year, but closed down on the following day.

After a clash between SLTB and private bus workers, Vigneswaran ordered both to run the bus service according to a joint timetable.
