Crumbling estate housing endangers workers (Pics)

A row of estate housing (line homes) in the Darawala Watta in Dickoya, Hatton, is on the verge of collapse, notes the administration of the estate.

This row of estate housing is over 150 years old and is said to have been built with stones and clay. The lime home houses around 100 persons of 32 families.

Around 5.00am today (26), walls of two homes have collapsed. Several other homes are also crumbling. Due the danger it could pose to the inmates, administration is taking measures to relocate these families to a safer location.

Residents say that they have complained of this to the estate administration on several counts.
