The government has decided to utilize funds of local banks and the services of local construction companies for the establishment of the Ruwanpura Expressway.
Although the project was planned with foreign funds, the implementation of the project using local funds has been found to be more beneficial to the country.
Accordingly, the proposal presented by Highways, Ports and Shipping Minister was given Cabinet approval to proceed with the Expressway construction, using the funds of local banks and the services of local construction companies.
Ruwanpura Expressway, proposed in the government’s policy statement “Vistas of Prosperity”, will link the Southern Expressway from Kahathuduwa – Ingiriya – Ratnapura to Pelmadulla.
