Chief Government Whip, Minister of Highways Johnston Fernando has instructed officials, including the Project Director, to expedite the construction of the Getambe flyover which was funded by the Republic of Hungary to ease traffic congestion in Kandy.

Construction of the Getambe flyover will reduce traffic congestion on the Peradeniya-Kandy road. Eighteen roads have been identified and widened and plans are being drawn up to reduce traffic congestion in Kandy.

Minister Fernando further stated that flyovers are to be constructed in congested areas in Colombo and its suburbs to alleviate traffic congestion on the main roads.
