The National Physical Plan for the next 30 years had been finalized, Megapolis and Western Development Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka said.

He expressed these views at an event held to give away houses for those who had lost their houses because of development projects.

“National Physical Plan 2050’ will be the future policy plan to develop Sri Lanka for the next 30 years until 2050,” the Minister said.

According to the plan, four economic corridors have been identified such as Colombo to Trincomalee, Galle Hikkaduwa to Tissamaharama, Jaffna to Kilinochchi and Valachchenai to Ampara.

He said they had finalized all the plans that should be carried out in respective corridors.

“One would wonder as to why Kandy and Anuradhapura have not come under the four corridors. We have made especial arrangements to those two cities also and would carry out strategic development projects,” he added.
