The Ministry of Highways and Investment Promotion, under the patronage of Minister Kabir Hashim, launched an island-wide rehabilitation project of the rural road network. Several new road projects were unveiled by the Minister recently in the Kegalle district, and more such projects are to be unveiled around the country in the coming days.

Under this new program every electorate has been allocated Rs.30 million to build necessary roads and repairs those that require it.  The aim behind this project is to re-connect the rural and urban centers with one another through a well-built and maintained road network.
