Travel times to shorten significantly with construction of Batticaloa domestic airport

Despite being once described by Sir Arthur. C Clarke as “a small universe [that] contains many variations of culture, scenery, and climate as some countries a dozen its size”, Sri Lanka can sometimes be quite tricky to navigate, despite its relatively small size.

More often than not it requires an overnight stopover in order to travel to the pristine beaches on the Eastern coast from the West.

That might soon change, for the wealthier at least, after construction of a domestic airport in the eastern town of Batticaloa began recently.

The project which is estimated at USD 6 million will consist of a 1700-metre long tarmac strip and a single terminal that will facilitate travel to eight other domestic airports that are being planned across the island.

According to reports, other planned airports will be constructed in Koggala, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Sigiriya, Trincomalee,  Ampara and Palaviya.

Why else would companies that have yet to show positive cash flow after six or seven years have access to more borrowing even as their balance sheets show an explosion of debt?

  3. Meni se radionica ekstremno svidjela. Već kalkuliram u glavi kome ću sve nešto od ovoga napraviti (a radit ću apsolutno sve).Saša je ekstremno ljubazan i profesionalan, a istovremeno i ekstremno simpatičan.Kao veliki plus stavljam njegov hipnotizirajući spikerski glas i samu smirenost koja stvara vrlo ugodnu radnu atmosferu.Hvala!

  4. By the way, by the way.To all those non-lefties named BerlinBerlin.Your president’s middle name is Hussein.That’s where the problem lies, atleast for you. It has nothing to do with the Hamas, or Gaza, or Israel.

  5. Luís Teixeira NevesO proselitismo judaico é menorizado ou mesmo negado pelos historiadores sionistas, mas ele é o grande responsável pela grande difusão do monoteísmo judaico no Mediterrâneo Oriental ainda a(ntes da) n(ossa) e(ra) durante o período helenístico. Shlomo Sand fala abundantemente sobre isso no seu livro (não traduzido para português) The invention of the Jewish people. Entretanto, na Península Ibérica continuamos a não ter notícia histórica ou arqueológica da presença da religião judaica a.n.e..

  6. I like this trade actually. Justin upton is a mvp caliber player. Sheilds, moore, neiman, hellickson, cobb is stil a top notch rotation. with bauer in the ranks. I am a big fan. Now I agree with you they dont “have” to trade price. But if they can get that kind of get, they may want to. How else are you going to get a player who is a mvp claiber player, RIGHT NOW.
