Geotechnical Investigation Extension of Southern Highway Godagama to Andarawewa Alternative trace Section III

Geotechnical Investigation Extension of Southern Highway Godagama to Andarawewa Alternative trace Section III (2014)

The Ministry of Highways and Road Development of Sri Lanka is implementing the extension of Southern Highway Project from Godagama in Matara to Andarawewa in Hambantota through the Road Development Authority (RDA).

Under Section III of the alternative trace from 0+000km to 13+000km, the proposed extension of the highway includes a stretch from Kapuduwa to Uduwa located between chainages 8+700km and 10+700km.

Most of the lengths of the highway in this section of the alternative trace pass over paddy and marshy areas because of which the road in this section has been designed as an elevated highway without hindering the water flow. Therefore, this section of the road has been designed as a viaduct area which would be supported on piles.
