Berthing Programme

Oluvil Port

Government of Sri Lanka, in its plan to give impetus to economic development in the Eastern region, has decided to build a port at a site in Oluvil. Under the “Nagenahira Navodaya” Programme which was launched to expedite the development activities in the region, higher priority was given for the Oluvil Development Project which will no doubt be an economic infrastructure the catalyst for the growth of the Eastern Region of Sri Lanka.

This port will form the southeastern link in the developing chain of coastal harbours in the country and will provide more convenient and cost effective access to and from the southeastern region for goods and cargo originating on the west coast.
