Hambantota

Hambantota city is located 241km (along A2 coastal motor way) south of Colombo in Hambantota district of the Southern Province of Sri Lanka.

Reaching Hambantota

Hambantota can be reached by scenic A2 coastal motor way (241km) from Colombo as well as by A8 motor way and A18 (221km) motor way travelling through the country side.

With the opening of Southern Expressway running from Kottawa to Matara, Hambantota is reached in a much shorter period of time though the total distance is still at 242km, i.e. Colombo to Matara (152km) and Matara-Hambantota (91km along A2 coastal road).

Furthermore, the newly constructed Southern Expressway running from Kottawa to southern coastal town of Matara (126km) is proposed to be extended to Hambantota.

Though, as at present, Hambantaota cannot be reached by Railway, the matter is taking a turn now. The ongoing construction of Matara-Kataragama Railway Line running a distance of 114.5km began in April 2010 is set to connect Hambantota.
