Responding to a question raised in Parliament today, the Minister said that section 2 of the Central Expressway was scheduled to be completed this month.
However, he said the completion of section 2 was postponed to December and is now expected to go into early next year.
Hashim also said that work on section 1 and section 3 of the project have begun.
Section 2 of the Central Expressway is being funded by local commercial banks while section 1 is being funded by China and section 3 is expected to be funded by Japan. (Colombo Gazette)
