Police have temporarily suspended the special traffic plan that was introduced from Battaramulla to Rajagiriya areas.

According to Police, the decision to suspend the traffic plan was taken following reports that the plan was creating traffic congestion in some areas.

Police introduced new traffic plans for the Rajagiriya area and Maharagama town from Monday in a bid to ease traffic congestion in these areas.

While the Rajagiriya traffic plan has been suspended, the traffic plan introduced for Maharagama will remain, police added.
