New bridge over Mahaweli

The Bridge

* Total cost Rs. 525 million.

* Comprises four lanes.

* Length 130 metres

* Width 20 metres

President Mahinda Rajapaksa commissioned the new bridge built across Mahaveli River at Katugastota along the A-9 Road yesterday.

This new bridge is 132 metres long and 20 metres wide with four lanes and has cost Rs. 525 million.

The construction activities on this bridge began from years ago as a measure to ease the traffic congestion at this prime location along Katugastota-Kandy Road. President Mahinda Rajapaksa declared open the bridge amidst Pirit chanting of the Maha Sangha and walked across the new bridge while exchanging pleasantries with the people gathered around there.

President Rajapaksa said this construction activity was long delayed and added that he commenced this work as Minister of Highways and also as Prime Minister. Today, I am happy to declare open this new bridge as the President, he said.
