The first stage of solid development is a good rule of law. that is deteriorating on daily basis in sri lanka. Good road network gives a consolation, but we can not reap the full benefits since investors are not willing to invest.

foreign investors had to find justice through their embasies - in Daraniyagala case it is US embassy asking for the justice.

When I changed my residence a few years back, I started exploring the new place; driving around on narrow back roads to see where they would go and how long it would take.
Then I realized that we have a wonderful network of tarred but narrow and poorly maintained back roads like veins in your body connecting to main arteries at strategic points.
I do not think most of them need no more widening but regular and good maintenance is all what is needed to keep the flow of the traffic smooth and not getting stuck.
Same can be said about the Rail network.
Little bit of an extension and regular and proper maintenance are all what we need here and not just more concrete serpents capable only of swallowing money and environment.

We need visionaries to represent us and not hell-bent on legacy making megalomaniacs. Shocked

That is fundamentally sound good.

But if u dig your head more deeper into the SL road network, this is absolutely bleak investment which could probably jeopardize economy in da long run. After 30 years of toll period that road should be maintained by government in addition to existing A9 highway. Due to toll return china could make positive cash flow for their investment. Check road density of developed countries. (km length road per 100 km2 of land area)

Sri Lanka-174
UK-172
Canada-10
Australia-9
Us-60
Norway-29
NZ-35

We are almost beyond our capacity and think about the maintenance cost...It doesn't make any sense na??

People did not get the main point here.


In economic terms time is money. Development goes hand in hand with...... ?


Think :
Can a tourist or for business purposes really afford to spend 3 hours to travel 72 miles ( for example) by rail or road? Maybe there are many different paths or means to get from A to B but are they efficient ?


Now , how the network is built is not analyzed in the above statement but only the need is mentioned. Ofcourse the network should be built via efficient and sustainable methods. Whether the Govn is doing that is another matter .


Side note :
Though we can criticize the british for certain issues, we should atleast thank them for a road networks which we used for over a century. We need to now adjust with 21st century if we need to push for development. It will be not be easy with many inefficiencies from top of bottom.

But we need to start somewhere.

Your point is valid and understood.

For comparison, I think we have to see the size of the country also. Because in bigger countries they have huge unattended lands and farm lands.

If you see the developed countries closer to our size,

Denmark - 172
Nederlands - 330
Switzerland - 173
Belgium - 504

and if you see smaller Singapore - 475

Singapore cannot be compared. Singapore population is 7315 people/km2 whilst SL 323 people/km2. Which is 20 times higher than, so if we compare with SL road density Singapore road density must be 20 times higher..

It appears that people even in this forum worried only about Development

Not on RULE OF LAW

What to do ?

How can we expect genuine investors and smoothly functioning Stock Market

I think we are compelled to take up this matter up seriously now

Not only development . rule of law and good economic management
are very essential for smoothly functioning stock market

Under this govt stock market has gone to dogs

This forum should  strongly criticize and guide  the govt

otherwise all of us inducing the govt will be trouble very soon already the crisis has started  

you can see symptoms now

He he who is the alternative............................lol

I strongly believe Rule of low will come second. Number one will be a good economy for the country. A good education. Then only the rule of low comes.

Dont compare Sri Lanka with UK and USA. We have more years to do it. Build some thing. A good brand or a business and give employments to others. Start to earn foreign money and help the economy and your self....................................

Dont wast your time voting to others in the election where you dont have the control. One day ask votes from others.

95% people are crazy and no plane to achieve in their lives. So be the 5% and lead the others.

This is the way to make this country a better place.

lots of people very critical about govern.. spending on road development .
according to recent world bank report-network vehicle operating cost has come down from Rs 24 in 2005 to Rs 14 in 2012
If it is true,isn't it a great investment???

like someone mentioned, I think the focus should first be on developing existing roads. The expressways are important given that they are managed properly and generate returns in the long run.

As for the other roads, I would say develop the existing ones first.
