"Maga Neguma" Rural Road Development Programme

72% from the entire roads network of Sri Lanka is rural roads. After the implementation of 13th amendment to the constitution in year 1987, there was not a separate rural road development programme funded by the central government until year 2004. Local government authorities were played a leading role in rural road development. In the year 2004, rupees 213 million had been invested under a pilot project and in year 2005 it was commenced to allocate funds by the general budget under the Ministry of Highways, for the development of rural roads.

"Maga Neguma" Rural Road Development Programme was initiated in 2004 when His Excellency, the President was the then Hon Prime Minister & the Hon Minister of Highways.  Under this program, most of rural roads are being improved to motorable level through direct labour of RDA or with the participation of Community Based Organizations which would thereby uplift the living standards of rural community.

Development of Rural roads by paving interlocking concrete blocks

As a new idea in 2010, construction of rural roads with pre-cast concrete block paving was encouraged in order to maintain quality of the materials and for easy maintenance even after a laying of an utility service. To accelerate the production of pre-cast blocks, utilization of block making machines was also encouraged and the required technical know-how was disseminated to relevant organizations through the Ministry of Highways. Since there was a big demand for the road paving pre-cast concrete blocks, RDA was also entrusted with the task of producing the road paving pre-cast concrete blocks with approved quality to supply at a reasonable price at regional level.
