City to Get 275m Br Pedestrian Crossovers, Bridges

April 17 , 2021

Pedestrian crossovers are to be built on the city's light railway lines and bridges on its highways at the cost of 275 million Br, the Addis Abeba Traffic Management Agency has announced. The Chinese firm JiangXi has won the bid to construct the bridges with 274.9 million Br, having 40m in length, 5.4m in height and widths of not less than four metres. Four road lines with high traffic volume have been chosen around Gurd Shola, CMC Meri, Gojam Berenda, and Saris Addis Sefer to construct the crossovers. These are roads where pedestrians and motorists jostle shoulder to shoulder, causing stressful congestion and accidents. The project aims at decreasing these accidents and alleviating congestion.
