YAMU's Southern Expressway Map (E01)


Posted by
Southern-Expressway-E01-Map

The next issue of YAMU Print is going to have some more maps, and this is one of them. This is the map of the Southern Expressway to Galle and (someday) Matara. We hope it's a bit clearer than what's out there. You can click on it to make it bigger.

Summary



If you're taking the Southern Expressway, you first need to fight through High Level Road (through Nugegoda, Maharagama, etc). You can catch a decent bus from Maharagama bus stand.

The highway signage is actually a bit confusing. Each exit has two signs, one for the town the exit is in (say Kurundugahahetekma) and the other for the place you're probably going (Ambalangoda). We've tried to clarify that by highlighting the name of the popular exit and noting the kilometer numbers prominently, which actually makes it quite easy to find out where you are.

We've kinda approximated the kilometers in the map, but we hope you get the point. This will be released on app and in the print edition soon. Consider this a draft and please comment with any corrections or suggestions.
