The construction of the Rajagiriya flyover is scheduled to begin in July this year as an interim traffic solution in the Megapolis plan, Deputy Minister Dr. Harsha de Silva announced today.

The flyover is expected to reduce the current travel duration to half from Nelum Pokuna to Battaramulla.

In a Facebook post Dr. Silva said the work is scheduled to begin in July and end in January 2018.

“The project is financed via a soft loan from the Spanish Government and the project which I have been fighting for a long time and I am very happy that finally we are going to see the construction will get underway,” he said.

    On a soft loan from Spain! This is in itself an achievement, not a loan without proper procedures on unfavourable terms from China

    Even to make Babies you need to wait for 9 months. So please wait for 2 to 3 years to construct the bridge.

    Good job, as a Sri Lankan i am glade to hear this news, but look at island wide there are lot to do like this, don't stick to Rajagiriya only, like what Mahinda did. Please. do it for other part of the Island also, the people living other part of the island their human too.

    Do it Sir. Then we will believe in what you say... No need of lip service...

    goldsandasia Friday, 13 May 2016 02:24 PM

    Very nice project..........until Battaramulla, where the full load of traffic ends in this small narrow town and creating an even bigger mess than now. Planning has to go more far than Battaramulla, taking out the through-traffic and keep only business traffic in this town

    The use of any new or improved roads should be taxed at a nominal rate (ranging from Rs.2 - Rs.10 with the use of a Electronic Road Pricing System) depending on vehicle type with the exception for public transport buses.

    ANTON Friday, 13 May 2016 02:59 PM

    CORRECT, PROMISES ARE LIKE BABIES, FUN TO MAKE, VERY DIFFICULT TO DELIVER.

    Flyovers are not the best solution as has been found out by many countries

    Good to see infrastructure development based on population and economic development.

    Shifa Monday, 16 May 2016 11:20 AM

    Don't expect traffic congestion to ease until public transport is improved.

    Bala Saturday, 14 May 2016 04:51 AM

    Costs more than Rs.2 admin cost. Reasonable Rs.20 for each entry.

    isira Saturday, 14 May 2016 08:54 AM

    No constructions since new government,but just talking and only searching for faults of the old government
