Heavy traffic congestion is experienced at the Panadura Clock Tower Junction in front of the private bus stand due to the haphazard parking of buses to board and drop passengers. Private buses and the SLTB buses both are parked on either side of the road near the private bus stand, creating heavy traffic congestion in the mornings. 


Buses were being parked on either side of the road to board and drop passengers, as a result, the little space in the centre of the road  was not at all enough for the free flow of traffic on the road. This created heavy traffic congestion to a distance of more than one mile in the mornings.   


The public pointed out that the buses should be parked in the bus stand and not on the roadside to board and drop passengers. They requested the police to prevent the parking of buses on the roadsides in front of the private bus stand at least during the peak hours.
