በአዲስ አበባ ቀላል የባቡር ትራንስፖርት ግንባታ ለማስጀመር የሚያስችል ዝግጅት ተጠናቀቀ



አዲስ አበባ፤ ጥር 15/2004 (ዋኢማ) - የአዲስ አበባ ከተማን የህዝብ ትራንስፖርት እጥረት ለመፍታት የተለያዩ የመፍትሄ አቅጣጫዎች ተቀይሰው ተግባራዊ እየተደረጉ ይገኛሉ፡፡

የትራንስፖርት እጥረቱ በዘላቂነት ለመፍታትም የቀላል የከተማ ባቡር አገልግሎትን ለማስጀመር የፕሮጀክት ዝርዝር ጥናት፣ የዲዛይን ዝግጅት፣ የማስፈፀሚያ ገንዘብ ማፈላለግና ተያያዥ ስራዎች ሲካሄዱ ቆይተዋል፡፡

በኢትዮጵያ ምድር ባቡር ኮርፖሬሽን የአዲስ አበባ ቀላል ባቡር ትራንስፖርት ፕሮጀክት ስራ አስኪያጅ አቶ የኋላሸት ጀመረ እንደገለፁት የዝግጅት ስራዎች በአብዛኛው በመጠናቀቃቸው አሁን ፕሮጀክቱ ወደ ግንባታ ምዕራፍ መሸጋገር ጀምሯል፡፡

በፕሮጀክቱ የመጀመሪያ ምዕራፍ ከአያት አደባባይ እስከ ጦር ሀይሎች ቀለበት መንገድ እና ከሚኒሊክ አደባባይ በመርካቶ ልደታ መስቀል አደባባይ ቃሊቲ የሚዘረጋው ሀዲድ ይገኝበታል፡፡ ርዝመቱም 134 ኪሎ ሜትር ይደርሳል፡፡

ግንባታውን የሚያካሄደው የቻይናው CREC ኩባንያም አያት አካባቢ ፕሮጀክቱ ሲጠናቀቅ ለባቡር መናኽሪያነት የሚያገለግል ቦታ ተረክቦ ጊዜያዊ ማእከል መገንባት ጀምሯል፡፡ በተለምዶ መሿለኪያ በሚባለው አካባቢም ለሀድድ ግንባታው አስፈላጊ የሆኑ የኮንክሪትና ተያያዥ ቁሳቁሶች ማምረቻ ፋብሪካ የመትከያ ቦታ እያዘጋጀ ነው፡፡

የኢትዮጵያ ምድር ባቡር ኮርፖሬሽን ዋና ስራ አስኪያጅ ዶክተር ኢንጅነር ጌታቸው በትሩ እንደገለፁት አብዛኛው የቁፋሮና ለሀዲድ ግንባታው የመሬት ዝግጅት ስራ የሚከናወነው በሀገር ውስጥ ተቋራጮች ነው፡፡ ይህም ለቴክኖሎጂ ሽግግር ከፍተኛ አስተዋፅኦ ይኖረዋል ነው ያሉት፡፡

የአዲስ አበባ ቀላል ባቡር አገልግሎት የመጀመሪያ ምዕራፍ ግንባታ በ30 ወራት ውስጥ እንደሚጠናቀቅ ይጠበቃል፡፡

እንደ ኢራቴቪ ዘገባ የከተማ ባቡር ትራንስፖር አገልግሎት እያንዳንዳቸው 286 ሰው የመጫን አቅም ባላቸው 41 ባቡሮች ሲጀመር በአንድ ሰአት ጊዜ በአራቱም አቅጣጫዎች እስከ 60 ሺ ሰው ለማጓጓዝ ያስችላል፡፡ ይህም የከተማውን የዝህብ ትራንስፖርት ችግር በከፍተኛ ደረጃ ያቃልለዋል ነው የተባለው፡፡

በህዝብ ተወካዮች ምክር ቤት የትራንስፖርት ጉዳዮች ቋሚ ኮሚቴ ፕሮጀክቱ አሁን ያለበትን የአፈጻጸም ደረጃ ጎብኝቷል፡፡

የቋሚ ኮሚቴው ሰብሳቢ ወ/ሮ ሙፈሪያት ካሚል በበኩላቸው ፕሮጀክቱ በተለያዩ ምክንያቶች ቢዘገይም አሁን በተያዘው ፍጥነት ከቀጠለ ለሚፈለገው ውጤት ሊደርስ እንደሚችል ተናግረዋል፡፡

የባቡር ትራንስፖርት አገልግሎቱ ስራ ሲጀመር ቢበዛ በአንድ ኪሎ ሜትር ርቀት ላይ ፌርማታ ይኖረዋል፡፡ እያንዳንዱ መንገደኛም ለተጓዘበት ኪሎሜትር ብቻ እንደሚከፍልና ባቡር ያመለጠው ቀጣዩን ባቡር ለመጠበቅ የሚፈጀው ጊዜ ቢበዛ 6 ደቂቃ ብቻ እንደሚሆን የፕሮጀክቱ አስተባባሪ አብራርተዋል፡፡

I thought this forum needs a separate thread for the tarns-national heavy duty, freight rail project and for the light city rail project.

I wonder where they will construct the service and inspection yard for the rail cars... Anybody knows?

Is the rail transit system going to tie in to the bus transit system?

The amharic text says they will construct the service and inspection yard (service depots as we call them in the UK) near Ayat.

Since the two lines criss cross the city passing through the old part of the city Im sure it is possible for commuters to use them for their transits, for example if you get off at a station near Meskel Square, Minilik Square or Legehar, you can find a bus to anywhere in the city.

True the public can get off any station and walk to the closest bus station.

I was curious to know if there is a systematic integration of the bus and future transit system. Here in the US, "rapid transit" is usually run by one agency for utmost efficiency.

For example, if you run LRT from tor hayloch hospital to ayat, you may not need to run as many buses along this main transit line but away from it originating & terminating at the statons.

I am sure the anbesa bus and ERC will coordinate and streamline their operations.

I think, what you are saying is that the LR will act like a main canal for the flow of traffic, and the buses will act as somthing like irrigation canals that will take their feed from the railwy( which is the main canal). It would be nice if they use it like that, but I doubt in its current design, the LR will be capable of being the primary source of transporation for Addis citizens, its current design is primarly to relif the pressure on the motor transport in the city, for that to happen I think they need to construct more additional lins that reach to various destinations in the city, im sure they will build more in the future,(even underground metro lines) but for now, I think two lines is a good beginning.

Is this light rail in the sense that western nations refer to it, or light rail according to Asia standards? Am wondering since this is being built by a Chinese company. Chinese light rail is often considered to be elevated metros in the west.

I hope they will build it to a good standard ,though not all of it,some of the line will run on elevated rails. you can view this video. just follow this link i posted below. most of the video is just interviews but it also shows the design briefly.

Quick translation:

- Several projects are underway to resolve the transportation shortage in Addis
- Among them is the light rail project - and feasibility studies, gathering funding, and other related activities have been ongoing for a while
- Currently most of the preliminary work is complete, so construction of the light rail has begun
- The 1st phase of the project is the line from the Ayat roundabout to the ring road at Tor Hailoch, as well as the line from the Menelik roundabout to Kaliti, by way of Lideta. That's a total length of 134 km (I doubt the accuracy of this number!)
- The Chinese company CREC is responsible for the construction, and it is building a temporary depot in Ayat; a permanent train depot will be built eventually on the same spot.
- They are also building a factory for concrete and other inputs in Megenagna
- The general manager of the rail corp has indicated the project will serve to transfer technology since most of the prep work will be done by locals
- The 1st phase of the project will be completed in 30 months
- There will be 41 trains, with each capable of handling 286 passengers at a time, so 60,000 passengers can be served per hour
- There will be train stops at least every km - trains will come every 6 minutes, or less - passengers will pay per km traveled.


That's basically it.

De rien Ras Siyan and you're welcome Boy Gaga.

Yes construction has already started
We'll have a proper tramway in 30 months (about mid-2014).

When they say National Heavy Rail (Future Extension), I wonder what they mean.

Are we planning on having inter-regional rapid transit system? I'm not sure they're using the term properly.

The national railways network is what they mean (you know, the 5000km u/c). Eventually the light rail will connect to the national rail network (as in, there will be a transfer point) so passengers will not have to take a bus or taxi to board a train bound for Mekelle or Awassa.
