Colombo-Kandy Expressway construction to begin from Monday

Construction work on the expressway between Colombo and Kandy is expected to start from August 3

The Colombo Page web site quoted Road Development Authority (RDA) chairman Saman Bandara, as saying that construction of the first segment of the expressway between Kadawatha and Mirigama will start on Monday.

He also revealed that construction of the second stage will be between Mirigama and Kurunegala, while the third stage would be between Kurunegala and Kandy.

An expressway between Kurunegala and Dambulla would also be constructed, he added.

The old government already "started" construction of the expressway last November. Maybe works will really begin now

No one knows but the OCH section could be opened on Monday too because both expressways end at Kadawatha.

Sri Lanka Central Expressway Project (2016-2020?)


PiX: Rukmal Gamage and the Ministry of Higher Education and Highways

As the country’s first E- Class highway commenced operations in 2011 Sri Lanka has gone on to commence the construction of more expressways such as the Central Expressways and the extensions of already constructed highways in a bid to improve the transport system.

On completion the Central Expressway will connect some of the main cities in the island, improving connectivity and travel time with the drive time to cities such as Kurunegala, Kandy and Dambulla is expected to be cut down significantly.
