The government has decided to install close circuit television (CCTV) cameras on the Southern expressway.
The Road Development Authority (RDA) has said that the CCTV cameras would be installed first between the stretch from Colombo to Galle.
RDA Director General R.W.R. Premasiri has said that the Southern expressway from Colombo to Galle is to be opened in August.
The CCTV cameras are expected to help authorities to crackdown on any violators of the law, especially motorists who violate the 100 kilometers per hour speed limit.
