    Are you crazy? The area that the southern freeway serves is vastly more populous than Kandy. And all the Yahaplana clowns who criticized the Southern free, how many times do they use it a month?

    The Central Expressway, also known as the Colombo–Kandy Expressway is a proposed road project that will link the Sri Lankan capital, Colombo, with Kandy. It will essentially duplicate the route of the A1 Road (Colombo-Kandy Road).The idea was originally proposed by the UNP government. In 2002, a Malaysian company has had discussions with the then United National Party (UNP) government over the Kandy-Colombo Expressway.However the project was not able to commence due to the elections and the fall of the UNP government.[1][2]In November 2013 the Project Minister for Highways announced that construction work on the Northern Expressway would commence in January 2015.[3] The first phase of the works will link the E03 expressway at Kadawatha through to Kurunegala via Ederamulla and Meerigama.[3] The next stage will see the road extended to Katugastota in Kandy. The Minister advised that the expressway would be built in three stages with financial assistance from China.[3][4]

    Discrimination for Central Province seems to be ended. Good hope and wishing all the very best.
