This report and recommendation of the president for the proposed Southern Road Connectivity Project in Sri Lanka describes the terms and conditions for the approval of ADB's Management or Board of Directors. 

The project will improve connectivity between the expressway and local transport networks in the southern region. By amplifying the benefits of the country’s first expressway network, the project will contribute to one of the Government of Sri Lanka’s key development goals, which is to develop the country into a regional trading center between the East and West. It will also improve access to economic opportunities, as well as basic social, health, and education facilities.
