Kurunegala- Dambulla Central Expressway(E04) soon

Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa said that the extending the Central Expressway (E04) from Kurunegala to Dambulla will be started soon.

While addressing a meeting organised in Kurunegala, the Prime Minister said the E04 was delayed due to regime changes from time to time. “We have inaugurated the construction work of the third stage of the E04 from Pothuhera to Galagedara recently under the E04 acceleration projec”, he said.

“During the time of our previous Government, we started the expressway projects including the E04,” he further said. “However, people had voted to the United National Party (UNP) to power. But they did not continue the projects which we had initiated”.

“They used different agendas,” “People again voted us to power. Since the projects did not progress, we had to restart them,” he said.

If the then UNP Government had continued with the projects which we had initiated, the Expressway to Dambulla would have been completed long time ago, the premier added.
