On Galle Road, the priority lane commences from William Junction and leads towards Dickmans Road Junction, Bambalapitiya, Colpetty, Galle Face roundabout, and the N.S.A. roundabout.

The law has further been implemented from Anula Vidyalaya towards High Level Road, Baseline Junction, Park Road Junction, Thimbirigasyaya Junction, Thunmulla Junction, Glass House and Pittala Junction.
