The arch bridge at Pilimathalawa, Sri Lanka.

The construction of a road to Kandy by the British was a very ardous task. After the climb up Kadugannawa various streams had to be crossed before the crossing of the Mahawely at Peradeniya. This was an arch bridge constructed at Pilimathalawa. Note the Sinhalised spelling of Edward Barnes on the name board.
