The Chapel Lane, Nugegoda, Pedestrian Crossing should be re coloured as immediatly as possible.

To whom it may concern

The Yellow ‘Pedestrian Crossings are highly important if you think of the safety of the pedestrians. Legally it protects the lives of not only big ones but also of the small ones.
There is one yellow pedestrian crossing that i notice very often that require the attention of the relevant authority immediately or as soon as possible. This specific pedestrian line i mentioned above is the crossing appearing before the Public Library located in the popular ‘Chapel lane’, Nugegoda. This lane is a highly busy lane, morning to late night and there after as well.

Why this specific pedestrian crossing is highly important compared to other crossings is that it is not only safe guards hundreds of people that use the ‘Public Library’ everyday but also it safe guards the lives of hundreds / thousands of little ones, school children of the Royal Institute, the International school locates on both side of the library other than the children and the people of the residents of the lane and every person who leads to there specific objective areas passing or crossing the mentioned lines. 

The danger here is that the yellow lines of the pedestrian crossing is not clearly visible and only a few lines of the crossing is existing. According to my personal awareness in about few days time, there will be no pedestrian crossing for people to cross the road safely because of its present condition. 

So my request is that it should be repaired, re coloured using permanent colours that may last at least a few months or years. And there is no point trying to charge the drivers that breaks the traffic rules, if the authority do not monitor relevant other things that protects the lives of the road users. Even for drivers attention it is important that you re colour every pedestrian crossing that you have not taken time to monitor after years of its original implementations.  Other than the pedestrian crossings ……………functioning The Traffic Signals are also equally important.

 The Traffic signal-pillars must be functioned accurately taking regular intervals and that should do justice to both drivers and the pedestrians. And after monitoring them the authority should pay their attention to place, replace or build a traffic pillar where it is important.

The other important thing is, according to my personal belief, some of the drainage lines in Nugegoda also should be cleaned not just because it directly or indirectly safe guard the health of the people but also it helps to keep this ancient, popular trade and residential city clean. 

I can name a few for your perusal.

The drainage system beside the public fair (Janathapola) in Nugegoda close to the Rail Way Station and the drainage lines before the public Devalaya in Devala Para (road) Nugegoda. These blocked drainage systems may lead to health hazards of the people of the residents of the area.  

The foot path wishes to see things corrected as soon as possible.

Inevitable Yesterdays ................

I can think of the yesterdays;
spent with at least few hopes, simple,
went passing me teasing and smiling,
disappeared like bubbles,
relaxed like butterflies,
massively supported my day to day plans,
did nothing but thinking or dreaming about the passages ,the pages uncompleted, ( if life is a book)
completed aims and objectives that took years to accomplish,
Wandering here and there seeking for an opportunity to earn a few rupees,
thinking of the moments unused or wasted.
about the decisions taken foolishly, years ago,
the people lived in tears and a hope , light of peace,
not posted a single sentence on footpath or on SLap or in the Junction ...................


i can think of the people who used their yesterdays in a fullest and meaning full ways,
the yesterdays that coloured our lives because of their courage and steady plans, the reason why this tiny country of this big world is smiling,

There is always a better tomorrow though every tomorrow becomes a yesterday ...........

world, let us save the tomorrows of  every single inch of this world by using your day intelligently.
