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

    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.

    well, pls. state the expensers , why do you allways talk about earnings, we want to know the real profit ok.

    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

    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?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 28 December 2013 09:03 AM

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

    Goofy Friday, 27 December 2013 03:27 PM

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