I am writing in regard to the article published in your newspaper on 17th January, which
discussedwas about the expansion of Colombo South Airport. I live just three kilometers away from the airport and stillthe noise is already distressing; disturbing andso any expansion of itthe airport will definitely make it worst. Therefore please allow me to point out the problems, which may become serious if this airport is expanded.
As I've already mentioned, the noise is almost unbearable
would make lot of problems tofor people who live close to the airport, and many of the local residents are not able to get a decent night's sleep especially at night, the noise will be very disturbing and people will not be able to get a proper sleepafter a busy working day. With the increase ofin the number of flights, this problem can become ais likely to get even worse. more serious.
Further, according to your newspaper article, the expansion of the airport will
utilizeuse the plot of land , which is currently being used as thewhere our local playground is located. Actually, this is the only available area where peopleresidents can organize some small sports events, and it's where many of the people living here do their the people who care about their health are using it as a place to do somemorning exercises.
Therefore, I urge the authorities to take into account our serious misgivings about this matter and not allow this project to go ahead.
would suggest, it is better if you can do an article about the problems, which may disturb day-to-day life of the people who live in this area.
