Colombo Urban Transport Project

The Third Roads Project aimed to improve the operation of existing roadways around Colombo, and in the south and west of the country through support for road rehabilitation and improved planning and oversight. No new roads were built. The project's main pbjectives were achieved, albeit with shortcomings; mainly shortfalls in works delivery, weak procurement oversight and contractor performance. road safety issues were also overlooked, and key institutional goals left unattained.
