SLPA plans multi-modal logistics park in Colombo

14 October, 2018

BY AZHAR RAZAK

In a major initiative that will vastly improve the country’s logistics sector, the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) plans to build a state of the art multi-modal logistics park spanning over 14-acres in a key suburb in Colombo consisting of both warehouse space and railway links, the Sunday Observer learns. The new facility currently in design stages is expected to be built with the participation of the private sector in the Bloemendhal area in Colombo, in close proximity to the site of the infamous garbage dump.

“We have earmarked 14.5 acres of land and we will be calling for Expressions of Interest from potential investors next year to build this fully fledged facility,” SLPA’s Director - Logistics, Upali De Zoysa said.

He noted that the planned facility could lower Sri Lanka’s freight and warehousing costs whilst reducing vehicular pollution and congestion.

The logistics park is expected to provide value-added services such as customs clearance with bonded storage yards, quarantine zones, testing facilities, and warehousing management services.

“Out of the 14.5 acres, we have to negotiate and acquire 1.5 acres belonging to the Urban Development Authority and nine acres from the Railways Department. The SLPA however owns four acres in the area,” the Director of Logistics highlighted.

According to informed sources, the proposed land area will have four warehouses with conventional cargo at Bandaranayake Quay for its intended development into a fully-fledged passenger ship terminal and also relocate three existing Custom Scanning facilities located outside the port premises into a facility center within the premises, adjacent to the port access road. The move would however force the relocation of 2,320 families from the Bloemendhal area, The Sunday Observer learns.

Meanwhile, addressing a recent event, Zoysa said the SLPA intends to table its three-year corporate plan, currently in draft stages, for cabinet approval by December 2018. In addition, he noted that the SLPA would deploy strategies through ‘a National Port Masterplan’ covering all ferry ports in Sri Lanka.

“We are planning to commission the East Container Terminal in a year,” he said.

Sri Lanka’s ports minister Mahinda Samarasinghe had earlier said the Colombo Port will target to handle a record seven million containers in 2018, improving by 13% from the 6.2 million Twenty Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) handled in 2017. Last year, Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera expressed plans to liberalise the shipping agency business, a move that could attract shipping companies to set up regional offices in the island.

Eco-friendly miniature theme park Minilanka Heritage Park to be launched by ICT4SIDS

he representative for ICT4SIDS in the Indian Ocean Region, Vittorio Coco, on Tuesday announced the initiation and planning phase of the Minilanka Heritage Park, an ambitious, multi-stakeholder tourism project aimed at furthering Sri Lanka’s efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the UN 2030 Agenda. The project will contribute to the fulfilment of SDGs 4, 12 and 17, through sustainable tourism.

Inspired by the 85,000-square metre, Italy-shaped Miniature Park in Rimini, Italy, The Minilanka Heritage Park will be built on a well accessible, countryside open space with a landscape design that will reflect the tear-drop shape of the island. The park is expected to become a top-rated international tourist attraction and the first-in-the-world to showcase unique miniature (1:25 scale) replicas of the country’s landmarks produced using 3D laser scanning drones flying over the original sites and 3D printers fed with filaments extracted from recycled plastic waste.

The park development will integrate a series of multipurpose playfields: Eco-certified bungalows for overnight guests, shopping and dining facilities all spread across a vibrant green environment. Completing the leisure experience for visitors will be a stretch of smart pavilions ordered to showcase different sustainability issues; i.e.: poverty, health, education, climate change, life on land and below water, etc. This is aimed at providing youth and adults with a learning experience platform (augmented and virtual reality, gamification and computer-aided strategic planning etc.), to explore the current progress of and eventually contribute their own next generation solutions towards fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals in Sri Lanka.

The initial planning team of service providers and products suppliers associated and coordinated by ICT4SIDS for the Minilanka Heritage Park include Erik Rorsch, international expert on miniature cities and attraction parks, Christiaan Kruis, environmental designer (www.christiaankruis-arch.com), Protoprint, India, the producer of filaments for 3D printing from recycling plastic waste (www.socialseva.org/protoprint) and Thrimana, www.thrimana3dprinters.com, the only Sri Lankan company already achieving successful expertise and results in the forefront of 3D scanning and 3D printer manufacturing.

Bigger role for private sector in Govt.’s building projects

Cabinet approves two-pronged programme, Govt. saves funds for education, health

The private sector will be invited to construct buildings for state agencies under a two-pronged programme approved by the Cabinet.
Under one programme, land for such construction will be provided by the Line Ministry or State Agency. Investors will be paid lease fees but will be required to turn over such property to the state within 15 to 30 years.

Under the second programme, where land and buildings are privately owned, the relevant Line Ministry or State Agency would be provided the right of use for a concession period. The National Policies and Economic Affairs Ministry in a circular has said that the state institutions should send in proposals for consideration to the Public Investment Committee (PIC) which will recommend whether such projects should be financed via the private sector or whether they should qualify for other sources of funding.

Under both programmes, new buildings are constructed according to required specifications of the Line Ministry/Government Agency concerned and the Government will provide the annuity payments on a guaranteed basis during the concession period on mutually acceptable terms to provide required comfort to the private sector investors and their bankers, according to the circular.

According to the circular issued to Ministry Secretaries, Provincial Councils and government departments, the programme’s objective is to save public funds for social projects, including the development of schools and hospitals.

The circular says these funds could be utilised for advanced educational projects and to improve laboratory facilities, health services, rural infrastructural development, and technical and vocational education among others.

Monday, 15 October 2018 21:03



SereniaLtd. and its board of directors together with Access Projects and Project Consultants ceremoniously broke ground to kick off the construction of Serenia Residences at a special ground-breaking ceremony in Talpe, Galle.

The ground-breaking ceremony saw SereniaLtd. and its board of directors together with Access Projects Managing Director Dilshan Ferdinando and a-design studio Project Architect Roshun Meezan along with more than 40 project consultants, engineers and bankers on site in Talpe.

Executive Director – Strategic Design and Marketing Sabina Karunanayake said: “Serenia’s first residential launch has been an overwhelming success, recording strong investor response from local and international investors. We are now commencing the construction of Serenia.”

Sabina went on to say that the plan was one of simple elegance, with stunning ocean views and spacious terraces, set to evoke the sense of being one with blue sky and life-giving ocean.

The Lankan Rs. 2 billion Serenia upscale development is the only beachfront residential project in close proximity to Galle, being a mere 8km from the Galle Fort, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, filled with shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. It is also just 2 km away from the famed tourist resort of Unawatuna.

The project includes 47 homes out of which 42 homes are two and three-bedroom condominiums that cost between $ 280,000 and $ 522,000, ranging from 1,360 sq. ft. to 1,850 sq. ft.

There are five upscale ultra-luxury units of which two are garden villas with direct beach access, while of the three penthouses which are equipped with private rooftops, only one remains!
