Police HQ moving to Nugegoda

The Police Headquarters in Colomb Fort is to be shifted to Mirihana in Nugegoda. Construction of the new headquarters will begin by end of this year at the location where the Police Emergency Centre is now sited.

This will be part of a government plan to move the headquarters of the Army, the Navy and the Air Force out of the Fort area and re-locate them at Akuregoda, in Pelawtata in Battaramulla, an official of the Urban Development Authority (UDA) said.

The present Police Headquarters is located in an area of more than one and half acres of land, he said. At least 100 acres of land in the Fort area will be vacated once the armed forces and Police Headquarters are shifted. The official added that the new military headquarters would be constructed in the style of the Defence Forces headquarter in the United States — the Pentagon — on 53 acres of land. Work on the project is already underway, the official added.

Only the operation units of the three forces and Police will be remaining in Colombo to deal with any emergency situation, he said. Along with the construction of the new armed forces headquarters, a major development plan would be also be simultaneously carried out in the area, the official said.
