Description

The project is to rehabilitate about 140 kilometers (km) of provincial roads in Northern Province and 170 km of national roads in Northern Province and North Central Province (NCP). The project is targeted to improve road connectivity in the country's conflict-affected area in the northern region, helping to restore access to basic social services and markets. It will facilitate economic growth and contribute to reducing disparities in Sri Lanka, consistent with one of the government’s key goals, which emphasizes equitable growth.
