Tech Golden Gate Kalyani to open tomorrow

Sri Lanka’s first high-tech cable-stayed bridge will be opened tomorrow (24).

The 380-metre long bridge across the Kelani River has been named Kalyani Rani Pivisuma, or Golden Gate Kalyani.

The Rs. 40 billion project consists of two sections, the extra-dosed bridge section over the river, and the steel box girder viaduct section over the existing roadway.

The six-lane bridge extends southwards from the Colombo-Katunayake Expressway and divides towards the port access road ending at the Ingurukade intersection and the Baseline Road ending at the Orugodawatte intersection.
