Proposed Kandy-Colombo expressway plan changed.
earlier plan- Ambepussa-Dewalagama-Rambukkana
new plan-
Earlier plan was more expensive(a lot of mountains) and low profitable.New plan private+gov project based on B.O.T.(Build,oparate,transfer).So new route is Colombo-Kurunagala-Dambulla and road to kandy will build via Pothuhara-Rambukkana-Kandy.

New four-lane road from Battaramulla

The Urban Development Authority (UDA) is preparing to construct a new four-lane highway in Battaramulla in a bid to ease the present traffic congestion.

While speaking to AdaderanaBiz, UDA Deputy Director – Planning Ms. Priyani Navaratne said that the first phase of this project would be from Polduwa Junction along the main road near Diyatha Uyana or Waters Edge and pass the rear of Sethsiripaya up to Subuthipura.

“We have chosen a local contractor for the construction. Work on this road will begin soon after the Sinhalese and Tamil New Year ends,” Ms. Navaratne said.

The second phase of this road would be up to Koswatte in Battaramulla.

“There are plans to extend this road further from Koswatte to the Defence Services Headquarters being constructed at Akerugoda in Battaramulla,” Ms. Navaratne added further.

Hi-tech Japan financed bridge to speed up traffic to Sri Lanka capital
03 Apr, 2014 08:31:23
Apr 03, 2014 (LBO) - A high tech 45 billion rupee bridge will clear a traffic bottleneck to Sri Lanka's capital Colombo and minimize its impact on the river flow underneath, the Japan International Cooperation Agency said.
The bridge across Sri Lanka's Kelani River will allow a smooth flow of traffic in to the city through new urban arterial road including access to an expressway to the main airport, port and other roads connecting to the rest of the island from the north of the capital.
Financed by JICA it is a project of Sri Lanka's Road Development Authority.

It uses cable stays connected to two towers at the ends to hold up the bridge with no piers in the middle of river. But unlike a conventional cable-stayed bridge, the design, known as an extradosed bridge uses shorter towers and a thicker deck.

"Using this design we can avoid putting any piers on the Kelani River," Namal Ralapanawa, senior project specialist at JICA said.

"That was one of the main concerns environmentally. The river is quite slow at that point and quite prone to floods. So we wanted to make sure that the bridge will not hinder the water flow."

The 6-lane bridge is 380 meters long over the river and with the elevated approach roads it will be over one kilometre long.

JICA says it now takes eight minutes to travel two kilometres over existing bridges to Orugodawatte during the morning and evening rush hours. It will increase to 20 minutes by 2020 if there is no solution.

Speeds will fall to between 5 to 10 kilometres an hour or 'jogging speed'. But the bridge is expected to reduce the time to traverse the two kilometer stretch to 4 minutes and at speeds of around 20 to 45 kilometres an hour.

JICA chief representative Kiyoshi Amada said Japan was continuing to finance Sri Lanka despite cuts in the budget for overseas development assistance over the years.

"Sri Lanka is one of our important partners," he said. "So we have not decreased assistance to Sri Lanka.

He said there may have been a decrease in grant funding. But even if budgetary resources were tighter, JICA was itself financing some of the lending through borrowings.

The bridge loan was also a 'very soft loan' terms of 0.1 percent interest and 40-year repayment, Amada said.

JICA officials said about 440 households displaced from the project will be given alternative housing. Some of them were living in areas prone to frequent floods.

In Sri Lanka there have been protests over evictions of residents for urban development purposes.

Under JICA procedures and Sri Lanka's policy on involuntary resettlement policy they will be given cash compensation or alternative housing.

About 90 percent of the householders were 'non-title holders' they would be given facilities to lead 'equivalent or better lives', Ralapanawa said.

Sri Lanka's Road Development Authority will purchase a housing project from the urban development authority to be distributed to the displaced families following consultations which have already begun, she said.

Title holders will get the option of the same package plus additional compensation, or cash compensation she said.

CKE will be elevated by building a ramp before it's entry into existing NKB interchange. Then the vehicle flow of the CKE will be directed towards proposed New Kelani Bridge 2 whereas Negombo road and Kandy road are connected with CKE by lateral entry roads.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa will declare open the newly constructed Manmunai Bridge in Batticaloa tomorrow. The new bridge across Batticaloa lagoon on Colombo-Batticaloa A-4 road via Pothuvil has been constructed at a cost of 1,870 million rupees fulfilling a long felt need of the people in the Eastern Province. Out of it 1,473 million rupees have been presented as a grant aid from Japan through the Japan International Cooperation Agency while the rest of the amount is local funds. The new bridge is 210 meters in length and 9.8 meters in width. In line with the construction of the bridge, a new causeway with an average length of 488 meters and 10 meters in width has also been constructed on either side of the bridge.
