Ruwanpura Expressway: RDA pushes ahead without EIA report

By Namini Wijedasa

CEA sources critical of process as being 'inside out'

The Road Development Authority (RDA) has started acquiring land for the US$ 1.8 billion (Rs. 275 billion) Ruwanpura Expressway even before a mandatory environmental impact assessment (EIA) and an economic feasibility study are completed, prompting Central Environment Authority (CEA) sources to denounce the process as ‘inside out’.

Tens of families have been issued notices under the Land Acquisition Act’s controversial Section 38(a) which allows for immediate takeover of land on grounds of “urgency” with compensation to be paid in the unspecified future. It is not clear what the urgency is as neither the EIA nor feasibility study is ready. And there is still no budget to pay landowners for the properties they will forfeit.

The RDA has already advanced Rs 314 million to a consultancy firm for the feasibility study which was initially given out for 32 weeks but is still not final, details obtained under the Right to Information (RTI) Act revealed. The job was assigned more than two years ago, in November 2014, to Maga Neguma Consultancy and Project Management Services (Pvt) Ltd which subcontracted it to Skills International. A penalty was not imposed for the delay. The agreement was merely extended.

Meanwhile, the EIA–which is crucial as the expressway will traverse environmentally sensitive areas–is yet to be presented to the public for comment. “We have to see it first to gauge whether it is suitable enough to open out for public comment,” a CEA official said, on condition of anonymity. Several areas along the proposed trace, running 73.9km from Kahathuduwa to Pelmadulla via Horana, are prone to disaster.

Eighteen percent of land acquisition is now finished in the 26.3km stretch from Kahathuduwa to Ingiriya while 40 percent of preliminary design work is also done. “The RDA is violating every step in the book in its rush to push this through,” the official pointed out. “What will they do if the EIA is rejected or there is a call for the trace to be changed? Or if the feasibility study deems the project to be economically unviable?”

The Auditor General’s Department has also queried the process, the Sunday Times learns. Civil works contractors have not yet been selected. It has not been decided whether to request proposals from a nominated contractor for the first section or to go for a Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) option, project officers said in response to the RTI application.

However, a Cabinet memorandum dated August 2016, obtained under RTI, states that the Cabinet Committee on Economic Management (CCEM) decided in July last year that the project should be divided into four sections. “…and technical and civil works of each section of the Expressway should be invited from one of the four companies identified for that particular section which were recommended by the Chinese Government,” it states.

This is no different to the much-vilified unsolicited proposals process that was followed by the previous administration which led to allegations of cost inflation and corruption. The Cabinet memorandum clearly states that the “single proposal” option will be chosen, in violation of a declared Government policy of open, transparent bidding.

The memo reveals that the first section from Kahathuduwa to Ingiriya was to be parcelled out to China National Technical Import & Export Corporation; the second 21km section from Ingiriya to Kahengama to China National Aero-Technology International Engineering Corporation; the 12.7km stretch from Kahengama to Bela to Hunan Construction Engineering Group Corporation; and the final 13.9km section from Bela to Pelmadulla to China Harbour Engineering Corporation.

Meanwhile, the National Physical Planning Department (NPPD) of the Ministry of Megapolis and Western Development has already voiced strong concern about the expressway saying it cuts through “central fragile areas” that are crucial to conservation of the country’s water sources. It previously sent letters to this effect to the RDA, CEA and others.

The Draft National Physical Plan– expected to be approved by the National Physical Planning Council headed by President Maithripala Sirisena next month–questions the requirement for both the Ruwanpura and Central Expressways. It strongly flags the sensitivities and fragile nature of these areas.

“If one wants to develop more than that, we will have to forget the beauty, salubrity and heritage and increase carrying capacities, investing huge sums on artificial infrastructure,” said Jagath Nandana Munasinghe, NPPD Director General. “This is the same in Ratnapura and the fragile area of the Sabaragamuwa province.”

The NPPD has pointed out that four urban metro regions–other than the Western Megapolis–are proposed to be developed in Trincomalee-Polonnaruwa-Dambulla; Jaffna-Kilinochchi; Hambantota; and Batticaloa-Ampara. This will attract a major share of the country’s future population.

“Such attraction will result in depopulation trends in the study region within the next 30 years, and thereby cause a decrease in travel demand within the study area,” it states, referring to the regions the Ruwanpura Expressway will cut across. “The growth factors used in the feasibility study to forecast travel demand could have considered such trends.”

Instead of expressways, Dr Munasinghe said, the NPP promotes railway improvements between Colombo and Kandy and Colombo and Hambantota via Ratnapura. “That is less costly, environment friendly and therefore more feasible,” he pointed out.

Access Engineering PLC Re-draws the Capital City’s Skyline with Capital Heights

September, 20, 2017



Construction of the 242-unit ‘Capital Heights’ luxury apartment project commenced on 18th September 2017,when Blue Star Realties (Pvt) Ltd., a Member of Access Engineering PLC, formally received China State Construction Engineering Corporation Ltd.,(CSCEC) to the site in Buthgamuwa Road, Rajagiriya. CSCEC mobilised its team to the site, in association with Access Projects (Pvt) Ltd., as the Piling Division of Access Engineering PLC successfully completed the piling stage of the venture.

Speaking at the Mobilisation Ceremony, Access Group Chairman Mr. Sumal Perera said, "Capital Heights is already receiving great interest from Sri Lankans living overseas, who are keen to invest in a home that is away from the busy city, yet with all the modern conveniences and ease of access. China State Construction Engineering Corporation Ltd. (CSCEC), in association with Access Projects (Pvt) Ltd. and the other partners on this project, are leaders in their speciality and together with them, we hope to deliver homes that balance construction excellence with low maintenance and comfortable living."

Set in the idyllic backdrop of the DiyawannaOya, this venture of Access Engineering PLC will see 242 apartments in two and three-bedroom configurations and 10 plush penthouses crowning the property. The location, just minutes away from all conveniences and government services, offers residents the tranquillity of living close to one of Colombo’s thriving wetlands. The apartments will be ready for occupancy in March 2020.

“Buthgamuwa Road, Rajagiriya, known as the Manhattan of Sri Lanka, with the backdrop of DiyawannaOya is a much sought after residential location and ‘Capital Heights’ will boost its property value further. Access Engineering PLC is a name synonymous in the area, having built the bridge across the DiyawannaOya and now fast completing the Rajagiriya flyover," said Rajitha Jayasuriya, Director Sales & Marketing of Blue Star Realties (Pvt) Ltd., the developing arm of this high-rise project.

Central Expressway: Agreement to be signed with Taisai next week

2017-09-20 17:20:21

Highways Minister Lakshman Kiriella said today the agreement to hand over the construction work on the Central Expressway would be signed with the Japanese Company, Taisai next week.

He told a news conference that the Cabinet had approved the decision to do so.

The minister said there had been no malpractice in the tender procedure and that they were able to reduce the Taisai bid from Rs.159 billion to Rs.134.9 billion after discussions.

He said the work on the Central Expressways was to have begun in August last year but it was delayed because of the tender procedure.

"The previous government gave contracts on building expressways without any tender procedures," the minister said.

He said some people were opposed to building the central expressway and recalled that the UNP government planned to construct it in 2002 but was unable to do so because the then government was toppled.

The minister said he was not prepared to respond to COPE Chairman Sunil Hadunnetti, who did not have any expert knowledge on expressways but would do so should the Attorney General raise any queries on any matter.

He said MP Handunnetti could question him on financial matters connected to the expressway only after the relevant accounts were tabled in parliament and based on the AG's observations on it. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

Capitol TwinPeaks Model Apartment now open

2017-09-20 17:10:37



Capitol Developers, the company developing the iconic Capitol TwinPeaks has unveiled its model apartment to the public for viewing. Staying true to its impeccable track record of delivering projects on time to delight its valuable customers, the construction of the iconic Capitol TwinPeaks is continuing at a rapid pace well ahead of schedule. The company’s customer-centricity is evident in the fact that the company delivers its promise of handing over projects in a timely manner to investors, so that they can gain expected returns from their investment in Capitol TwinPeaks as planned.

Scheduled to be ready for occupation by end-2020, Capitol TwinPeaks is envisioned as an iconic project consisting of 400 plus apartments featuring 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedrooms; at its strategic location at 24, Staple Street, Colombo 2. One of Colombo's most central apartment blocks, it is located in what’s to be the trendiest neighbourhood in 2020, with proximity to prestigious shopping malls and other conveniences, in addition to a beautiful entry point with the lake frontage of Beira Lake. The rapid development of Capitol TwinPeaks and other mega infrastructure projects in the surrounding area is driving the real estate prices up in the vicinity, rendering Capitol TwinPeaks a highly lucrative project for the most discerning investor.

Apart from considering the location, the partners in the project are a key consideration of a prospective investment property. Capitol Developers is a member of the renowned construction giant, Sanken Group. In fact, all properties developed by Capitol Developers have been contracted to Sanken Construction (Pvt) Ltd., the most trusted name in the construction industry, which guarantees timely delivery of the apartments to buyers along with the hallmark construction quality of the Sanken brand. Sanken has a reliable track record in world-class quality construction, being responsible for 80% of Colombo’s skyline, which makes this project a highly stable investment.
