The proposed investment program will improve the efficiency of road network in the south region of Sri Lanka to handle the fast growing travel demand incurred by the economic and social activities. In order to address the bottlenecks of national road network in Southern and Westen Provinces, the investment program will (i) rehabilitate about 35 kilometers of national highways providing access to the southern expressway, (ii) extend the southern expressway by constructing about 40 kilometers of elevated expressway towards the origins and destinations of traffic in Western Province, and (iii) improve the efficiency of the Ministry of Ports and Highways to operate the expressway network and the associated facilities. The proposed investment program, together with the earlier Southern Transport Development Project will lay the foundations for modernizing the country's transport sector.
