Colombo-Kandy expressway, to boost tourism – report

The proposed Colombo-Kandy expressway is expected to ease tourists’ travel time and connect the country’s hill capital with the commercial capital which is a step taken in the right direction, said Bartleet Religare Securities (BRS) report on tourism and hotel industry.

“Completion of the Katunayake expressway and the Southern expressway contributed immensely in reducing travel time from the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA), and to the beach resorts in the Southern coastal region. At present Sri Lanka’s road network is improving at a slow but steady pace with some of the key areas within the Colombo city and Kandy been the main points of road congestion,” it further said.

The report has also paid a tribute to SriLankna airlines for its decision to join ‘oneworld Alliance’ in April 2014 enabling the airline to offer increased connections across a global network.
