Sri Lanka to hire supervisory firm for elevated expressway project
The government of Sri Lanka has assigned the country’s Road Development Authority (RDA) to obtain consultancy services for supervising the construction of the elevated expressway from the Athurugiriya interchange of the Outer Circular Expressway to the Kelani Bridge via Rajagiriya.
Accordingly, the government has said a consultancy firm should be appointed as an independent engineer to supervise the construction and maintenance work to ensure quality and timely completion of the project.
The Sri Lankan government in May awarded China Harbour Engineering Corporation (CHEC) the contract for Designing, Building, Funding, Operating and Transferring (DBFOT) of the elevated expressway.
Sri Lanka is engaged in an aggressive development programme covering several key economic sectors and has also opened a host of new business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka. Apart from direct engagements in development programmes, foreign businesses could also look at providing technical assistance and engage in the development of supplementary infrastructure development programmes. Foreign businesses/investors could therefore explore the expanding opportunities in Sri Lanka’s development programme.
