Integrated Road Investment Program
The investment program will improve the accessibility of the road network in rural areas of Sri Lanka, and thereby increase the involvement of the rural population in nationwide economic and social development. An integrated road network will support long-term rural development. The investment program will upgrade and maintain about 2,200 kilometers (km) of rural access roads to all-weather standard; rehabilitate and maintain to a good condition about 400 km of national roads; and improve the capacity of road agencies including the Ministry of Highways, Ports and Shipping (MOHPS), the Road Development Authority (RDA), provincial road agencies, and local authorities with respect to road asset management, project management, and contract administration. The investment program will play a catalytic role in the sustainable development of Sri Lanka.
