The agricultural irrigation culvert in Kitalagoda, Dalugoda in Thihagoda, Matara has not been repaired for many years and is now on the verge of collapsing, residents of the area said.

The buses overloaded with passengers and heavy vehicles ply on the road even though the culvert poses a high risk of fatal accidents.

Therefore, they urge the relevant authorities to take steps to renovate the culvert before a fatal accident.
