Country s first expressway opens Sunday - Co-financed by Japan
Sri Lanka s first Expressway, which links Colombo to the South, and has been co-financed by Japan, is scheduled to be opened on Sunday, by President Mahinda Rajapaksa with Japan s special envoy Yasushi Akashi in attendance.
Deputy Japanese Ambassador Hideki Ishizuka, speaking to journalists in Colombo yesterday, said that his government had provided a soft loan of 36.3 billion Yen, repayable in 20 years, with a grace period of ten years, to construct the Expressway from Kottawa to Kurundugahahetekma, a distance of 66.1 kilometers, while the Asian Development Bank financed the balance 29.3 kilometers up to Galle.
An efficient road network was a prerequisite to facilitate social and economic development, because such connectivity of communities can attract new investments and generate more job opportunities, he said.
