The Road Development Authority is engaged in a hurried construction of a VIP entrance in the Southern Expressway covering the areas Matara, Godagama and Barawakumbuka.
This entrance is being constructed in Bedigama, Weeraketiya giving access to Tangalle and Weeraketiya. According to RDA sources, Kasagala entrance is the only entrance after Beliatta and an entrance in between is not found in the original plans.
The RDA has been engaged in constructing the Bedigama entrance a few days ago. When inquired, an official from the RDA did not give a clear explanation and he said that he would do so in the near future.(Chandrasena Gamage)
