The Irrigation Department today decided to suspend the project to construct a jogging track on the breakwater of the ancient Parakrama Samudra.

Department’s Director General K.D.N.Siriwardana told the Daily Mirror that if there is no agreement with the opposed parties, we will repair the damage caused to the breakwater.

Several parties across the Polonnaruwa District paid their visit to the construction site on Friday to witness the destruction caused to an ancient water conservation system, he said.

However, it was reported that the breakwater of the historic Parakrama Samudraya was destroyed by the use of heavy machinery, including backhoes, to construct a jogging track. (Chaturanga Samarawickrame)
