Dear Madam President/Dear Highways Minister,
I found this article(written in 2001) in the government website 3 years ago and couldn't wait until 2005!
It says ,
"Sri Lanka will have four major expressways along with eight flyovers (PDF) by the year 2005. A spokesman for the Ministry of Highways said that this was part of a massive plan by the government to improve the infrastructure facilities in the country."
Will my grand children(your great-grand children ) be able to use these super-expressways if we if we build them in the current pace or was it 3005?
What is the current progress of each project?
When will we be able to use them ?
What is happening in the current southern expressway project?
Why does the southern highway keep shifting in the plan ?Is it to avoid using properties of members of parliament(UNP and SLFP both)?
When can a visitor from another country can get to the capital of the country from it's only international airport within a decent time frame?(thanks for the baseline road.)
Do you have any plans for the worsening traffic in Colombo and deteriorating transportation system in the country as a whole?
Have I lost my marbles to ask accountability from the Sri Lankan government ?
After writing the above I checked http://www.mohsl.gov.lk/ .It says the time frame for 5 major projects is 2015.There are some spreadsheets named "progress reports " with lots of empty cells.They are calling for tenders again for CKE(Colombo Katunayake Expressway)!Ok let's cut them some slack( like we did for the past 50 years).Let's check in 2015 how far we have gone.
