President orders speedy construction of Central Expressway

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has directed the Minister-in-Charge to accelerate the construction works of the Central Expressway project.

Construction of the section from Colombo to Kurunegala has been disrupted due to issues relating to the compensation payment process. The President instructed Minister Johnston Fernando to complete the construction of the expressway while providing a quick solution to the prevailing problems. 

President Rajapaksa gave these directives during a public gathering held in Mawathagama Public Fair premises, Kurunegala, during his tour of the district for the 2nd day today (27) in support of the candidates representing Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP).
