Jan 14, Colombo: The second phase of the Central Expressway from Mirigama to Kurunegala (Athugalpura entrance) will be opened to the public on January 15, 2022 under the patronage of the President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The length of the second phase of the Central Expressway from Mirigama to Kurunegala is 40.91 km.

Built to minimize environmental and social impact, the expressway will bypass urban areas and pass through mainly vacant lands.

The four-lane section of the road from Mirigama to Kurunegala has now been identified as the most beautiful expressway section in Sri Lanka.

The Central Expressway segment from Mirigama to Kurunegala includes 5 interchanges with toll counters at Mirigama, Nakalagamuwa, Dambokka, Kurunegala and Yaggapitiya.

This section of road was constructed by local contractors with local funds at a cost of Rs. 149 billion.
