Dehiwala is a suburb area in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It is inside the administration boundary of Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia Municipal Council. The town has also suffered extensive pollution as a result of uncontrolled growth and heavy congestion. Road expansion has been futile and the consideration of over-head roads and Colombo Metro Skytrain line are currently underway to ease the problem.
