Two flyovers estimated at Rs. 6 billion to be built in Slave Island

The Cabinet of Ministers has granted approval to the construction of two flyovers estimated to cost around Rs. 6 billion near the railway station in Slave Island in Colombo.

The proposal to construct these flyovers was submitted to the Cabinet of Ministers by the Minister of Highways.

The flyovers will be constructed above the railway tracks along Sri Uttarananda Mawatha and Justice Akbar Mawatha in Slave Island.

The flyover constructed near Sri Uttarananda Mawatha will be 420m in length, while the flyover near the Justice Akbar Mawatha will be 350m in length.

The two flyovers are expected to help address the daily traffic congestion reported from the area.
