The Sri Lankan gov­ern­ment has ap­proved the im­ple­men­ta­tion of some 64 con­struc­tion projects for 2017 un­der the Sukitha­pura pro­gramme, a ma­jor in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment plan de­signed for the coun­try’s Western Prov­ince. Ini­ti­ated last year, the project has now been ex­panded to de­velop some 23 town­ships, such as Bat­tara­mulla, Borella, Bu­lathsin­hala, Ho­magama, Ho­rana, Kadawatha, Kaduwela, Ka­lu­tara, Kes­bewa, Kot­tawa, Ma­hara, Ma­haragama, Meerigama, Panadura, Piliyan­dala, etc. The pro­gramme aims to up­lift Colombo's com­mer­cial and fi­nan­cial cen­tre. For this pur­pose, the ex­ist­ing in­fra­struc­ture will also be up­graded to shift ad­min­is­tra­tive fa­cil­i­ties from Colombo to other ar­eas of the Western Prov­ince.
