Toll Road Enterprise Collects 147m Br

December 26 , 2020

The Ethiopian Toll Roads Enterprise, which administers the Addis Abeba-Adama and Dire Dawa-Dewele expressways, has generated 157 million Br in revenues within the first five months of the current fiscal year. Out of the total revenues, 147 million Br was generated through facilitating the traffic flow of 3.6 million vehicles, achieving 90pc of its goals. The remaining revenues were bagged through advertisment fees on boards, compensation fees on damaged road infrastructure and towing services. The Addis Abeba-Adama toll road, the first in the country, was inaugurated over six years ago and is a 31m-wide, six-lane expressway that took five years to be completed. It shortens the total travel time from two hours to 45 minutes. Dire Dawa-Dewele, a two-way highway that ranges from 10m to 21.5m in width and has a 10cm thickness, crosses over 29 bridges and has three toll plazas. It cut in half the current time it takes to travel to Dewele.
