Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka has proposed an ambitious Light Rail Transport (LRT) project in the City. To be undertaken with assistance from JAICA (Japan International Co-operation Agency), it will cover highly populated City areas running through four divisional secretariat areas.
