    Please extend the Duplication road (R.A. De Mel Mawatha) as well. That is long overdue.

    Many developed and developing countries are going for Mass Transit projects rather than new highway projects. Sri Lanka is going to opposite direction by cancelling LRT project and trying to study elevated expressway!

    If this is 100% BOT, good for the country
