NCP road projects expedited - Minister

Highways Minister Johnston Fernando yesterday instructed Ministry officials to expedite all road development projects in the Anuradhapura District that have commenced under the North Central Province Integrated Road Investment Project.

The projects which began during the times of the previous government had been only eye wash projects which did nothing beyond the initial work.

“I started all road development projects with due Cabinet approval so that they could move forward progressively,” the minister said speaking to journalists at his ministry.

Under the North Central Province Integrated Road Investment Project 82 kilometers of roads would be developed at a cost of Rs 6,745 million. Under the project 27 km long Thalawa-Kekirawa (B213) road, seven km Kekirawa-Ganewalpola (B212) road, 45 km long Ganewalpola-Dachchihalmillewa (B133) road are also to be developed.
