Soldiers on leave
take A-9 route
Transport of security
personnel on leave on the Jaffna-Kandy A-9 route
liberated during the recent military operations
after 27 years will resume tomorrow.
Steps have been taken to open the A-9 highway for
the vehicles transporting security personnel on
leave from Jaffna and back.
As a result the heavy cost of transporting security
personnel by sea and air could be cut down to the
barest minimum. Police and the security forces would
be deployed to provide protection on the highway.
