The extending the Central Expressway (E04) from Kurunegala to Dambulla will be commenced soon, Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said.

While addressing a meeting organised in Kurunegala, the Prime Minister said the E04 was delayed due to regime changes from time to time. We have inaugurated the construction work of the third stage of the E04 from Pothuhera to Galagedara recently under the E04 acceleration project, he said.

"During the time of our previous Government, we started the expressway projects including the E04," he said. However, people had voted to the United National Party (UNP) to power. But they did not continue the projects which we had initiated.

"They used different agendas," he said. "People again voted us to power. Since the projects did not progress, we had to restart them," he said.

If the then UNP Government had continued with the projects which we had initiated, the Expressway to Dambulla would have been completed long time ago, the premier added.  (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Sir, people voted you to power because we don't have no alternative. It doesn't mean you are honest and efficient. Apart you and your clans the rest of the country know well that our beautiful country is debt ridden.

    While people are starving you are building high ways. What a pathetic government. All for commissions.

    Lots of highways but who could afford a vehicle? Only the politicians and their super rich friends.

    This is a priority when many people are starving. Some don't have a proper foot path to get to their homes. A carpeted road through Sinharaja must have been for a politicians benefit.
