New Battaramulla Traffic Plan (Map).

UPDATE: This traffic plan has currently been suspended. After less than a week.

This is a map of the new Colombo traffic plan to and from Battaramulla. The new rules apply from 7:30 – 8:45 AM.

Battaramulla has, as of late, become choked with traffic. This traffic plan – which will apply from 7:30 AM to 8:45 AM – hopes to ease that. A bit.


Getting into Colombo from Battaramulla will be partly one-way, fleeing up lanes for traffic to flow better.

  • One Way Thru Rajagiriya: From Rajagiriya (near Welikada Police Station, marked on the map at right), the road becomes one way
  • Two Way On Castle Street: Then after Ayurveda Junction (marked with a medical sign) it’s two way again, until you pass Devi Balika Junction (marked with a see-saw)
  • One Way On Horton: Then it’s one way again, up until the Horton Place roundabout


Leaving Colombo and heading to Battaramulla will involve a bit more of a detour. You can enter from Borella side via the Cotta Road, which is relatively simple. This isn’t marked as one-way on the map, but it is recommended.

If you’re coming from Colpetty, however, you need to detour toward Independence Square, then go up Gregory’s Road and past the cemetary.

Here’s the official police map if you can make head or tail of it:


We hope this makes sense. They will be having rehearsals on Saturday from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM and on Sunday from 7:30 AM to 8:45 AM. So if you’re living around there, you’ll figure out the plan soon enough.

Good luck, and Godspeed.
