The Kotmale Road running across the Kotmale Dam has been re-opened after 15 years. It was shut down in 1994. The Road was closed down due to terrorist threats.

The Government decided to re-open the road, with elimination of the fear syndrome that gripped the country due to terrorism.

Minister C.B Ratnayake re-opened the road. Many villagers in the vicinity will benefit by the re-opening of the road. The Gampola, Nawalapitiya and Kotmale SLTB Depots have begun operating buses.
