2nd phase of Central Highway will be delayed - Johnston

The construction work on the 2nd phase of the Central Highway will not be able to complete within the stipulated time frame, according to the Highways Minister Johnston Fernando.

The Minister made these remarks when he undertook a visit to observe the ongoing work of the highway.

Minister Ferando said the construction company involved in the construction work of the highway has been deliberately delaying the work.

He also disclosed that the construction company is owned by a powerful minister of the previous government.

"Therefore, the construction work of the second phase of the highway will not be able to complete as planned," he added.
