          Governor's Mansion is only 3 1/2 hours from Colombo international airport. This is taking it very easy and stopping for comfort breaks if you so require them. It is via a beautiful route.

          The person referred to the state of repair of the main road. Busses, cars, cyclist, pedestrians all use the road. It has been repaired by RDA and maintained for quite some time.
