The Rajagiriya flyover, constructed to provide long term solutions for the heavy traffic congestion in the area, was declared open by President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe on Monday (January 8).

Speaking at the occasion, President Sirisena said that a request has been made by the public to name the flyover after the late Ven. Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero.
 
The construction of the flyover was completed a year ahead of the scheduled date upon the instructions of the President. The Rajagiriya Flyover was constructed at a cost of Rs. 4,700 million.

The four-lane-flyover constructed under a Spanish Flyover Project and a local company is 533 meters in length and consists of a 180 meter access road.
