The construction was launched under the patronage of the Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa and Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa.
The main road will have six lanes. The first stage will be 13 kilometers from Mattala to Kataragama via Lunugamvehera. A programme is also planned for the planting of “Na” plants on either side of the road.
