Kinniya new bridge is currently the longest bridge in Sri Lanka. This was build with the donation from Saudi Arabia and opened to public in 20th October 2009. Kinniya bridge is 10 meters wide and 495 meters in length.
This bridge replace the old ferry service operated through the Kinniya lagoon. Still you can see the old abandoned ferry by a side. This ferry used to operate from the morning to late evening and carry both passengers and vehicles. One of the noticeable thing was that it has a separate control station, which is located few feet above the deck.
There is a boat service available from this point and you can hire a boat and go a round. The path of the journey includes riding under the bridge and taking a turn also. Its costs 600/= per one ride. Seems this service is not properly monitored by the authorities and no life jackets provided.
