Colombo Seafront Expansion Project

Feb 11, 2011 6:59:14 AM - news.lk

Plans are afoot to build a new port city by reclaiming the seafront at a cost of $350 million and selling the land as it expands the island nation's main harbour, said the Deputy Minister Rohitha Abeygunawardena.  He further said that South Korea's Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co is expected to complete a $300 million port expansion by April 2012 with a 6.8 km breakwater for three new container terminals.
