At Goro-Bole, Deputy Mayor Launches Expensive Projects

April 3 , 2021

The Addis Abeba City Roads Authority launched the construction of a 4.9Km road that will connect Bole International Airport to the Goro neighbourhood in the southeastern section of the city. The city's Deputy Mayor, Adanech Abebie, launched the project that is forecasted to cost 1.6 billion Br. It has been contracted out to Aser Construction Plc, while Unicon Consulting, a Pakistani firm, will carry out the supervision work. At 320 million Br a kilometre, this road will be one of the most expensive roads built in the city, after the massive uplift of Africa Avenue (Bole Road). The road will include pedestrian walkways and a bicycle lane and is hoped to play a role in alleviating the heavy traffic that constricts the Gerji-Goro road. The project is expected to be completed in two years.
