Description

Sri Lanka’s new Outer Circular Expressway links Colombo-Katunayake Expressway and the Southern Expressway. JICA is financing Phase I (Kottawa to Kaduwela) and Phase II (Kaduwela to Kadawatha), including the interchanges at Kottawa, Pore-Athurugiriya, Kaduwela and Kadawatha of this expressway. This will initially be a four-lane expressway but has provision to expand to six lanes depending on traffic demands.
