“Sukitha Purawara” Program

The present government initiated to develop western region under the Western Region Megapolis Planning Project, which is to be prepared by covering whole Western Province. The current population in the Western Province is 5.8 million, which accounts for approximately 29% of the county’s population. The GDP contribution of the Western Province is nearly 45% of the county’s total GDP. Therefore over the years the province has attracted many migrant people due to various comparative advantages. This inward migration of people caused to urban expansion/ sprawl of Colombo which has spread beyond its administrative boundaries to both inner and outer suburban areas. As a result of this serious of secondary townships emerged in the spatial structure of the Colombo. The development of these townships have not undergone through a comprehensive planning approach, instead haphazard development was taken place in these townships as per aspirations of individual developers/ investors.

With the high population growth in these suburban townships, the demand for required physical, social and environmental infrastructure continuously grew at a higher rate than the supply. This caused major issues in relation to transportation, housing, public recreation facility and city economy in these urban sub systems.

In this background with the guidance and directives of Ministry of Megapolis and Western Development the UDA has initiated the “Sukitha Purawara” Program in order to cope up with the issues which need to be tackled in the short term basis.

The objectives of this program are,

  • Improve comfort, convenience of the city users.
  • Improve livability of the city.
  • Enhance city economy in a way which benefits to the all segments of the community.
  • Ease emerging issues in relation to traffic congestion, housing demand, community open spaces and etc.
The tentative estimated cost for all projects under this development programme is approximately Rs. 25 Billion, out of which it is expected to invest approximately Rs. 7.6 Billion for the year 2016.

New projects expected to start in 2016, under the Budget Proposal
