Description

This is the first section of the E04 Central Expressway project in Sri Lanka, which will connect Colombo to Kandy. This section entails the road construction between Kadawatha and Mirigama.

According to some news sources, China's Export-Import Bank was supposed to loan more than $1 billion for the project, but there have been delays.

The project used to be named "Northern Expressway Project" before it was changed to "Central Expressway Project."
