Construction of the first elevated expressway begins

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe launched the construction of Sri Lanka’s first elevated expressway connecting the Colombo Port City and the new Kelani Bridge.

The Port access road will connect the new Kelani Bridge at Inguru-kade inter-section and from there to the Colombo Port city will be constructed on pillars. This will be the first Port access road that will be constructed on pillars. This project is due to be completed within three years.

The inaugural ceremony of the project was launched under the patronage of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. A group including Ministers Kabir Hasheem, Sagala Ratnayake, Patali Champika Ranawaka, Mangala Samaraweera, Ravi Karunanayake and Daya Gamage was present on this occasion. The construction of the 5.9 kilometer Port access road will be funded by a 300 million US dollar loan from the Asian Development Bank. The second phase of the elevated expressway will be planned from Orugoda-watta up to Rajagiriya
