Jaffna – Poonaryn Ferry Service Resumes
[Updated :: 2010-06-14 10:20:41 Hours]

A ferry service from Poonaryn to Jaffna started on Sunday (13th June 2010) after about fifteen years facilitating free movements for civilians in the north.
The service had ceased after the LTTE destroyed the causeways and jetty on either side and dominated the areas carrying out terrorist activities.

People had to travel on land for hours to reach these two destinations which lie in the seeing distance each other of about thirty minute sail across the lagoon. Three boats carrying twelve men, eight women and two children set off Gauthamunai in Poonaryn and reached Maniyanthottam jetty near Gurunagar around 2.00 p.m.

State-run passenger busses of the Jaffna depot were awaiting their arrival at Maniyanthottam.This new ferry service will reduce people’s traveling time by two hours.
