Hambantota Port Bypass Road

This is a vital bypass road that connects the Matara–Wellawaya road to city of Hambantota and acts as a critical diversion around the Hambantota Port. Eventually proposed to become a 6-lane road, the construction was carried out within an accelerated time period of 1 month, in lieu of its urgent necessity as conveyed by the Road Development Authority.

Its successful completion within this time frame allowed construction of the Hambantota Port to continue undisrupted, saving potential economic and environmental losses.
