‘Lankan Eiffel Tower’ on way

By Gagani weerakoon
The Cabinet has approved a proposal forwarded by President Mahinda Rajapaksa to build a 350-metre tall TV tower which would be similar to that of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and make the surrounding ground an amusement park.
Government sources said the Cabinet paper was forwarded last week and the ideal land is yet to be identified.
“Initial assessments and feasibility tests will be done eventually,” sources said.
“However, it is to be established in a land in the Western Province. Subsequently, all television stations will have to use this tower and the government will later decide whether to remove other existing TV towers,” said the sources.
