Jan 08, Colombo: President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe declared open the Rajagiriya flyover for public this morning.

The four-lane 533 meter long flyover constructed at Welikada junction in Rajagiriya is considered as the longest flyover in Sri Lanka. It is expected to provide a long term solution for the heavy traffic congestion in the Rajagiriya area.

According to the Deputy Minister of National Policies and Economic Affairs, Dr. Harsha de Silva, the construction of the flyover was completed ahead of schedule in 11 months and under budget.

The construction works commenced in 2016 jointly by a Spanish company and a local company. The project at a cost of Rs. 4.7 billion was financed via a soft loan of Rs, 4.3 billion from the Government of Spain.
