Construction work launched on Sri Lanka’s seventh expressway

Construction work was launched today on Sri Lanka’s seventh expressway.

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa launched construction work on the first phase of the Ruwanpura Expressway.

Phase one of the project will connect Kahatuduwa to Ingiriya.

The proposed Ruwanpura Expressway will commence from the Kahatuduwa interchange on the Southern Expressway and proceed to Pelmadulla via Ingiriya and Ratnapura. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Hon. PM Mahinda Rajapaksa should make sure along with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa that “corruption” does “NOT” take place in these projects. The biggest threat to the “PEOPLES” welbeing and “DEVELOPMENT” of our “MAATHRUBOOMIYA” is not terrorism or extremism as it seems. IT IS THE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AT ALL LEVELS OF PUBLIC SERVICES IN THE COUNTRY. The government should do NOT fear the 1.3 million odd public/government servants because they may retaliate if you take action against them or strike and cripple the economy/country, but like how you eradicate the ruthless LTTE in 2009, wage war against these corrupt officials and the politicians involved with them and rid the country of this menace once and for all. Those patriotic government officials/servants who love their “MAATHRUBOOMIYA” should come forward to help you do this. You have just 3 1/2 year left of your Presidency left. Make it a “TOP PRIORITY” to rid corruption in the country during this balance period. The people will vote the present government and you again at the next elections, if you fulfill this inner “DESIRE” of our NATION. Even the humble voters supporting the opposition, JVP, SJB, TNA, SLMC & ACMC will give their votes for you to continue this “NOBLE” task for the benefit of our “NEXT GENERATION”.

  2. Without doubt, there will be substantial filling of ministerial bank accounts with this project. But at least, much needed infrastructure is being built.
