3 expressways to be vested with the public shortly!

Prior to the end of the year, three more expressways will be completed and vested with the public, according to Highways, Road Development and Petroleum Resources.

Accordingly, the Matara-Hambantora expressway, Kadawatha-Kerawalapitiya expressway and the Meerigama-Kurunegala expressway will be completed and vested with the people.

Creating history in the country, the Kadawatha-Kerawalapitiya expressway is constructed over the railway line, which is done for the first time in the country.

Similarly, the first ever highway-highway interchange would be established on the Matara-Hambantota expressway.

With the opening of the Kadawatha-Kerawalapitiya expressway, access would be made possible directly from Katunayake to the Southern expressway.

These expressways are scheduled to be opened by November, but depending on the weather the Matara-Hambantora expressways might be a bit delayed, according to ministry sources.
