Nugegoda flyover almost ready

The Highways and Road Development Ministry said that the Nugegoda flyover is almost ready for its opening on January 23. Minister T. B. Ekanayake launched work on the bridge on October 01 last year.

The Nugegoda Flyover and Kelaniya Flyover were planned to comprise four traffic lanes. This flyover which is 261 meters in length and 8.7 meters wide has cost Rupees 870 million. The funding was sponsored by the British Government, and installation was by the British Company Mabey & Johnson under the direction of the Road Development Authority.

The daily traffic snarls at Nugegoda junction prior to this project, resulted in unnecessary waste of time and fuel.
