Local Navy craft transports passengers at Kurinchankerny lagoon

The Sri Lanka Navy is now providing safe passenger transport at Kurinchankerny lagoon in Kinniya, Trincomalee.

From yesterday (25), it deployed a lagoon craft capable of carrying 25 passengers safely at a time.

It will be available until the construction of the Kurinchankerny Bridge is completed.

The Navy also erected a temporary jetty to allow passengers to board the vessel safely.

This comes three days after a makeshift passenger ferry capsized in the lagoon, killing six and injuring many others.
