Notes on the Geography of Sri Lanka: Colombo 2: Photo 2

world pictures Sri Lanka: Colombo 2

Colombo not only handles domestic exports but transships a lot of Indian cargo, which comes here in small vessels because India's few deepwater harbors can't handle all of India's exports.  The proposed construction of a navigation channel (the Sethusamudram Project) through the Palk Strait between India and Sri Lanka might divert some of this traffic to Singapore or Malaysia. It worries people interested in the health of Colombo's port, as well as those interested in the biodiversity of the strait.
