There is an expressway from the Airport to Peliyagoda (a suburb just on the border of the city limit).

There is an expressway from Kaduwela ( a suburb east of the city ) to Galle/Matara. Kalutara is near one of the initial exits. It's about 30+ mins from Peliyagoda to Kaduwela

There is also the initial part of the expressway, from Kottawa ( A suburb int he SE of Colombo ) . It's about 1 hour from Peliyagoda.

Peliyagoda to Kaduwela is not connected yet. Probably won't be till next year.

That will depend on traffic and the time of the day.

Could be anything from 1.5 hours to 2.5 hours
