Landmark? or Loony mark?: TRC Tower

A landmark tower from where people could have an overview of Colombo city has been proposed by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRC).

TRC director Anusha Palpita told the Sunday Times that many countries have landmark towers and in keeping with this trend they too have proposed one at Peliyagoda.

He said the tower would also be used as a communication tower by television stations. “Visitors who come to Colombo do not have many places to visit other than the Galle Face Green and the Zoological gardens. Now that the war has ended people are looking for more recreational facilities.

This will serve that purpose,” he said. A revolving restaurant would add to its attraction, Mr. Palpita said.
