Sri Lankan government to recommence stalled bridge construction project in Hambantota
The Cabinet of Ministers in Sri Lanka has last week granted approval to recommence the constructions of 18 bridges in the country’s southern district of Hambantota. These bridges have been partially completed.
Co-Cabinet Spokesperson, Minister Bandula Gunawardena has said that approval was granted to transfer the construction work to the Road Development Authority (RDA) while the Southern Province Road Development Authority will supervise the activities.
The Cabinet proposal was presented by Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa in his capacity as the Highways and Road Development Minister.
The government of Sri Lanka has once again recommenced it’s development programme that was stalled due to the spreqd of the Covid 19 global pandemic. Nevertheless, relaunching the projects have once again opened up business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka. The country’s construction, highways and power sectors have already kicked started the process of bringing Sri Lanka’s economy back to normalcy. However, Sri Lanka has through the years shown its resilience to internal as well as external pressures and maintained an active and expanding economy.
