Work on Kottawa Expressway city to begin soon

April, 1, 2014

While AdaderanaBiz continued to reveal details of the ultra modern city near the Kottawa interchange of the Southern Expressway, now it could be revealed when this project would begin.

Urban Development Authority (UDA) Deputy Director – Planning, Priyani Navaratne told AdaderanaBiz, “The planning stages of this project have been now completed. We expect to begin the contruction work in about a month.”

This land is connected to the marsh near the present Pizza Hut restaurant. A bus stand for the buses plying the Southern Expressway, a super complex and a housing complex are to be constructed within this ultra modern city while several state institutions are to be moved to this city.

Priyani Navaratne added that the plans include this location to be developed as a transport hub and the Kelani Valley railway line too to be extended to this city.

The Urban Development Authority (UDA) has decided to offer opportunities to the government and private sectors to establish office complexes of over 10 stories within the proposed ultra modern Kottawa expressway city.

The UDA has reserved an extent of five acres towards this.
