President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday stressed the need for having an effective mechanism for the maintenance of the road network to pass the dividends of the country’s development effort to the common masses.
He said there should be a common approach to uplift and maintain the country’s road network.
President Rajapaksa made these observations when he met officials at a discussion at Temple Trees on road development in the Hambantota district yesterday.
He said the provision of infrastructure facilities such as construction of street lights and a sound drainage system should go hand in hand with the road development if the people are to receive its real benefits.
