A way to save some fuel and time if you travel Northwards from Colombo.
With the opening of widened Padeniya - Anurapura Road, we can go Northward more quicker than ever.
You can reach Padeniya from Kurunegala.
I have used this road several times to go to Anurapura before they developed it to the present condition. .
It is better if you can take the alternative way from Colombo via Ja-Ela - Minuwangoda - Giriulla - Wariyapola avoiding highly congested Colombo - Kurunegala main road.
