"Ran Mawath" Rural Roads Maintenance and Construction Programme

Budget Speech para. 149: " “Ran Mawath” Program – Mr Speaker, The Government has invested a significant amount of resources to construct roads and expressways. Since 2015, we have spent around Rs.700,000 Mn. for roads alone. Despite the amounts spent, there are many more roads that need to be constructed. Under the “Gamperaliya” Program, provisions are allocated for rural road construction. Yet, considering the national importance of further rural and other road development, I propose to allocate a further Rs.10,000 Mn. for the maintenance and construction of, mainly rural roads, through the “Ran Mawath” Development Program."

  • Allocation (Rs. Mn)10,000

  • Ministry / Government Institution : Ministry of Roads and Highways
