    That is 10 cars entering the highway every minute 24 hours a day! Doctored?

    who believe the statistics. Statistics are altered in this country. We recently heard when the actual Economic growth rate was 5.4 it was altered to 6. Any way the money earned from this highway belongs to whom. to srilanka or China.

    It's possible as there will be peak periods where more than 10 vehicles will enter the highway in a minute
    Plus its used by all the passengers going to and from the Katunayake airport.
    If you are so uncertain about this figure, just go there & take a vehicle count for an hour to get an estimation

    Compared with the actual cost incurred to build one kilometre of road, this income is rather insignificant, especially if the statistics are "massaged"

    We need more of these highways despite the cost of investments Singapore and Malaysia are examples for those who doubt.

    250 million from local people not from any other country?

    Mohamed Ali Monday, 30 December 2013 05:01 AM

    How long it will take to recover the money spent(?) for this highway?
