A proposal, which had been made for the construction of by-pass road from the Polduwa junction, Battaramulla to the Udumulla Junction via Suhurupaya was approved by the Cabinet, Cabinet Co-Spokesman Gayantha Karunathilake today said.

“The government's policy is to relocate all government institutions to Battaramulla, within the Sri Jayewardenepura Administrative City. Many of these institutions have already been relocated and in line with this infrastructure, such as roads and transportation should be provided immediately.

“It has been proposed to construct a by-pass road of four kilometres from the Polduwa Junction to Koswatte Junction.

“The proposal had been made by the Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka. The by-pass road is planned to be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs. 250 million,” the minister said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    The figure 250 million rupees is incorrect for sure. 4kms of overpass for 2m dollars is so cheap.

    By pass has to be extended from borella to Koswatta.

    not an overpass, it is a bypass. Already part done by Gota

    It is not a overpass, but a bypass road of 4km costing 250mn.. I guess quite a lot going toward compensation payments. otherwise too expensive

    By pass roads are very essential every busy junction in the island.this is a very good move by the government.we have noticed since many years much needed fly overs to be build in busy junctions like narahenpita. borrella,and divulgus handiya. these junctions are daily getting blocked and motoriest and people are unable to pass soon due to traffic lights system.hope the govt. will pay special attention on this issue will consider public opinion in the near future . best regards.
