The road from Mahawilachchiya to Silawathura in Kondachchi road was in a dilapidated state throughout the civil war in the country. But the road usage increased remarkably after the dawn of the peace. Now more people use this road. Especially, the Civil Security Force use this road as they daily travel to the government cashew farms in Kondachchi. The villagers requested the provincial government to repair the road. Under a directive of Mr. S. M. Ranjith, the Chief Minister of the North Central Province, the road repaired started yesterday. The villagers also helped repair the road. Since the road runs through Wilpattu National Park, the road cannot be carpeted and has to be maintained only as a gravel road.
