Kegalle Bypass

This project was initiated to fulfil the need of bypassing the Kegalle City for long distance commuters, thus drastically reducing both traffic congestion and travel time. The scope of work involved the construction of a new 2.3km road through natural terrain which consisted of paddy fields, hilly rubber-cultivation lands and rock outcrops.

Eight bridges and several bypass roads were constructed, along with tall retaining walls, toe walls and gabion structures that protected the very high embankments. A diligent and resilient project team managed to complete the project within a period of 7 months, one month ahead of the scheduled completion date.
