Even though the construction works of the flyover was scheduled to be completed by the end of this year, steps were taken under the guidance of the President to complete the construction works 11 months ahead of the schedule for the convenience of the public.

The flyover built using high standard modern technology as well as in accordance with high quality engineering, and this will be added to our roadways history as the first flyover constructed filling concrete surfaces on metal. This is also the most beautiful flyover in Sri Lanka.
