A bit older but interesting news about the south-western ethiopia gambela region road construction.

Developing states benefiting more from transport, communications sector
Wednesday, 10 February 2010
Gambella, February 10 (WIC) – Gambella State Chief Administrator, Umod Ubong, said encouraging results have been registered in the transport and communications sector owing to the due attention paid by the government to ensure sustainable development in developing states.




Opening the 5th Federal and State Transport and Communications Sector Institutions Consultative Forum in Gambella town, Omod said developing states have benefited more from the activities carried out in the transport and communications sector over the past 18 years.

He said residents of Gambella state were among those who benefited from the endeavors carried out in the socio- economic and political sectors.



Omod said 950-kms dry-weather road has been constructed in 10 woredas of the state following the prime attention given for the road sector. Moreover, Akedo, Itang, Jikawo, Metehara, and AKobo woredas have benefited from water transport service.



He added the construction of 144-kms Gore-Gambella and 101-kms Gambella -Itang-Jikawo asphalt roads is underway with over 1.2 billion birr earmarked by the federal government.




Upon completion, the roads will have significant contribution in expediting the economic growth of the state, he indicated.



In addition to connecting all woredas and kebeles with road within the coming five years, the state government in close collaboration with the federal government will work to strengthen water transport service.



Transport and Communications State Minister, Getechew Mengiste, on his part said the ministry is doing its level best to enhance the benefit of the public from air transport, telecommunications and postal services though expanding good experiences.

More than 120 experts drawn from transport and communications bureaus of all states took part in the forum organized to improve transport and communication services in the country.

Does anyone know if the tracks in any of the routes will be double tracks? or just one track going back and forth. I read online that having two tracks can be up to 20 times more efficient than a single track

Roads Authority Inaugurates Four New Roads
Written by Fortune Sunday May 1, 2011
Monday, 02 May 2011 14:36


The Addis Ababa City Roads Authority (AACRA) has completed the construction of four new road projects that were constructed at a cost of a little over 674 million Br.

The roads are: Ayat CMC-Adwa Square, yerer Ber-Anbesa Garage-Lem Hotel-Shola Market, Mekanissa-Jemo-Sebeta and Woreda 17-Health Center-Imperial Hotel.

Due to the recent real estate expansion in the causing traffic congestion, the Ayat CMC-Adwa Square Road, was built in two sections by China Road & Bridge Crop (CRBC).

The Yerer Ber- Anbesagarage-Lem Hotel-Shola Market Road, constructed by Enyi Construction Plc, cost 131 million br. The design and supervision was carried out by a local consultant, Best Engineering Consult.

The Mekanissa-Jemo-Sebeta(not realy sebeta but alemgena.when i was there in last summer they were working hard on it) Road was also opened for traffic last month. Hazill, a local construction company took on the project in October 2007 and completed it in April 2011. The design and Supervision work was conducted by Highway Engineers and Consultants.

The Woreda 17-health Center-Imperial Hotel Road was constructed at a cost of 60 million Br by the AACRA, which was established in March 1998 and is engaged in the expansion of the city road network.


Addis Ababa currently has 3,324 km of roads of which 1,662 km are asphalt However, the construction of these roads is “Far less” than what is required, according to a press release by AACRA.

Omo river bridge caves in mid-construction.

Ethiopia: Omo River Bridge Caves in Mid-Construction

Abenet Assefa

9 May 2011


Around 90 metres of bridge being constructed by Midroc over Omo River collapses

A 90-metre portion of the Omo River Bridge, which is under construction in Omorate Zone, Southern Regional State, collapsed onsite.

The accident occurred at around 5:15pm on April 19, 2011, when one side of the bridge, located 850km from Addis Abeba, gave in without warning.

The iron bars supporting the construction appeared unable to support the weight of the bridge, resulting in the collapse, eyewitnesses told Fortune.

The construction of the 128-metre Omo River Bridge was awarded to Midroc Construction in 2005, and was originally planned to be completed in 2010.

The accident might have resulted from the use of 20-year old iron bars in the construction of the bridge, according to Habtamu Adnew, spokesperson for Omorate Wereda Administration.
This greedy company

The bridge is an integral part of the region's development as it would link Nyangatom and Dassenech weredas once completed, Habtamu claimed. It is also central to the Mombassa-Nairobi-Addis Abeba corridor which, in turn, is an important part of the Trans-African Highway from Cairo in Egypt to Cape Town in South Africa, the spokesperson pointed out.
"The bridge is crucial as it would be an important transport link for the Gibe III and Gibe IV dams as well as a corridor for a planned dry port station in the area that would serve imports coming from the Mombassa Port and Northern Kenya," Habtamu told Fortune.


A taskforce comprising lecturers from Addis Abeba University (AAU), engineers from the federal government, officials of the ERA, and Midroc are investigating the accident, claimed Samson Wondimu, head of public relations at the Ethiopian Roads Authority (ERA).

He refrained from speculating on the circumstances surrounding the collapse.

"It is too soon to speculate on why the bridge collapsed," Samson told Fortune.

He is not the only joke, our government is probably the biggest joke. This is a classic case of 'lack of oversight', and everyone in Ethiopia knows about it.
Midrok is not an NGO, its a PRIVATE company, and just like BP, Halliburton or any typical greedy multinational companies do, they want to spend as little as possible and make as much as they can. Ethiopia is like the wild west when it comes to the construction industry, its still in its infancy and needs a strong government oversight to 'guide' contracts to do the 'right thing'. But the government is filled with woyane cadres who are uneducated, unpatriotic thugs that can't even run their houses properly let alone major construction projects. So, as much as we like to blame Midrock for this shameful disaster, our government should be the one held responsible. But Since the parliament is filled with Woyane and the oversight committee doesn't have either the capacity nor the will to put this company under scrutiny, it will just be brushed aside and the drama will continue again ...

Local firm to finish 841 mln birr(50 mln dollars) roads within deadline.

Local Firm to Finish 841m Br Roads within Deadline

Sur Construction to complete two roads connecting Amhara with Afar regional
states this month



Sur Construction Plc, a local firm, is set to finish construction work on two roads to connect areas in Amhara Regional State and Afar Regional State at a total cost of 841 million Br within a month to meet its deadlines.

The Shahura–Gelego and Chefera–Aloha roads cost 341 million Br and 500 million Br, respectively, and were fully financed by the federal government.

The 147km Shahura–Gelego gravel road is expected to be finished this month with the aim of connecting these two areas that were previously inaccessible because there were no roads, according to Tadesse Yemane, general manager of Sur Construction, which was established by the Endowment Fund for the Rehabilitation of Tigray (EFFORT) with an initial capital of 108 million Br in 1992.


“This road passes through a particularly rocky and inhospitable area called Yewusha Tirs,” Tadesse told Fortune. “The project tested our abilities but we persisted and will meet our deadline.”

Sur Construction, which has completed more than 27 road projects and over 40 construction projects as well as two airfields and two hydropower projects with a total value of around 2.5 billion Br, started work on the road in October 2005.

The Shahura–Gelego road is expected to open the area, which is well known for sesame production and prime farmland, to investment, according to Samson Wondimu, director of communications for the Ethiopian Roads Authority (ERA). The road will also connect the region to neighbouring Sudan, boosting cross border trade, Samson claimed.

Sur Construction, which has an annual turnover of more than 690 million Br, plans to also finish main work on the 80km Chefera–Aloha asphalt road and open it for traffic by June 2011, according to Tadesse.

The road will link Chefera Town in Afar Regional State with Aloha Town in Amhara Regional State.

In conjunction with the road project, the repair work of bridges in the area damaged by seasonal floods is also to be completed, by the beginning of 2012, according to Tadesse.

The road will connect the salt producing regions in Afar Regional State to Amhara Regional State and serve as a conduit for goods and services to enter Afar,” Samson said.

It would have an additional impact by connecting Amhara Regional State with Djibouti Port by way of Afar Regional State to increase the traffic in goods and transport of people in the region, he claimed.

The road project, which took more than three years, was on schedule to be completed within deadline, according to Samson.

Sur Construction Company recently finished the 57km Holeta–Mugher asphalt road in Oromia Regional State, in June 2010; the 128km Gonder–Dansha asphalt road in Amhara Regional State after three years, in December 2010; and the 49km Woreta–Gobgob asphalt road on the Woreta–Debretabor road that is part of the Djibouti–Mille–Chefera–Aloha–Woldiya–Woreta corridor, in December 2010.

The company, which employs over 1,500 permanent and contract employees, is currently involved in 12 projects nationwide.

More road construction for local firms

Auth. Prefers Local Firms for Roads

Small companies to build short roads, larger companies get phases of long distances



The Ethiopian Roads Authority (ERA) plans to award the upgrading of 19.3km Kebre Mingist–Shakiso Road from gravel to asphalt to local road construction companies.

These contracts are to support smaller companies experiencing difficulties competing with large foreign and local construction companies, according to Samson Wondimu, director of communications at the ERA.

Grade One to Grade Three contractors are eligible to compete in the bidding for the road that opened on May 17, 2011.

The authority plans to support companies with inadequate capital or resources by awarding them short distance road projects, according to Tesfaye Kebede, junior communications officer at the ERA. It also plans to award long-distance road projects to more established companies in phases, to ensure speedy completion of the projects, Tesfaye explained.

The existing road network consists of 48,800km, which is expected to increase to 64,500km by 2014/15, according to the GTP.

The Kebre Mingist–Shakiso Road is connected to the Abusto–Negele Corridor, which is being upgraded from gravel to asphalt along with its branches. It is to link towns in the road’s vicinity as well as connect the gold producing region to the main road in two years.

Ethiopia extracted just over 5,815kg of gold in the first 10 months of this fiscal year, earning the country 243.3 million dollars. A total of 2,045kg of gold was mined in Oromia Regional State, the top gold producing region, exceeding its target by 122pc.

“We plan to award the construction work of 22 more road projects with a total value of around seven billion Birr before the end of the fiscal year,” Samson told Fortune.

These include the 181km Mekanajo–Dembi–Dolo asphalt road in Oromia Regional State, 121km Welkite–Hosana asphalt road in Southern Regional State, 72km Mehal Meda–Abus asphalt road in Amhara Regional State, 47km Abus–Alem Ketema asphalt road in Amhara Regional State, 30km Chancho–Derba–Bechu asphalt road in Oromia Regional State.

The authority has budgeted more than 15 billion Br for road projects this year, Samson told Fortune.

Under the new GTP, 84,649km of roads are to have routine maintenance performed, 5,023km are to be upgraded, 4,700km of asphalt and gravel roads are to be maintained, and 728km of road are to be rehabilitated.

Over the previous five years, 852km of roads were reinforced, 4,039km of roads were upgraded, 2,769km of roads were constructed, while heavy maintenance was provided for 3,660km of existing roads under the government’s Plan for Accelerated and Sustainable Development to End Poverty (PASDEP).


The bid for the Kebre Mingist–Shakiso Road closes on June 21, 2011.

The Ethiopian road authority to link economic hubs at 1.9 billion birr(122mln US dollars.

Auth. to Link Economic Hubs at 1.9bn Br

The Ethiopian Roads Authority (ERA) plans to award five road contracts worth around 1.9 billion Br to connect economic hubs with existing road networks before the end of the fiscal year on July 8, 2011.

The road projects are to link agriculture producing regions, neighbouring countries, tourist destinations, and industries with existing roads.

The construction of the 30km Chancho–Derba–Bechu concrete asphalt road project in Oromia Regional State is estimated to cost 210 million Br.

Oromia Regional State, an important region for the production of barley used to manufacture food items and alcoholic beverages, will be connected to Addis Abeba and neighbouring regions with the road. It would also connect other parts of Ethiopia to the Derba Midroc Cement Factory being constructed in the area.

The second road project is the 71km double surface asphalt Mazoria–Durgi Road Project in Southern Regional State, which is estimated to cost 426 million Br. The project is divided into two parts connecting the coffee and fruit producing regions to neighbouring regions, according to Samson Wondimu, director of communications at the ERA.

“The third project is the 52km two-phase Sawla–Kako gravel road in Southern Regional State and is estimated to cost just over 161 million Br to connect the coffee and cereal producing areas, which are also a tourist hub, with the strategically important city of Arba Minch,” Samson told Fortune.

Further southeast, the three-phase 105km Yabelo–Meta Gefersa–Oblo gravel road project that forms part of the Addis Abeba–Mombasa road is to be constructed in Oromia and Southern regional states at a cost of 525 million Br.

The project is expected to connect Ethiopia with Mombasa Port as well as increase trade between the two countries and the two regions straddling the road, according to Samson.

The fifth project is the 77km Dejen–Felegebrehan asphalt concrete road project in Amhara Regional State that is estimated to cost 539 million Br and will connect the wheat and teff growing areas with Addis Abeba.


The ERA had planned to do work on 19,563km of roads this fiscal year. Out of the total, 1,755km were to be rehabilitated, upgraded, and constructed while maintenance work was to be performed on 17,808km. Over the past 10 months, the authority has rehabilitated, upgraded, and constructed 1,388km. It has also done maintenance work on 14,233km.

The authority’s initial budget for road works was 13.6 billion Br, but it received an additional injection of 1.6 billion Br from the federal government in December 2010.

The projects form part of the total of 11 road projects worth around 4.7 billion Br that could be awarded before the end of the fiscal year.

The other six road projects the authority plans to award are worth 2.7 billion Br. They are the two-phase 80km Seru–Shenen River–Sheikh Hussein gravel road estimated to cost 400 million Br, and the 87km Dima–Feyelwuha double surface asphalt road estimated to cost 609 million Br.

It also includes the two phased 82km Belta–Saula double surface asphalt road estimated to cost 409 million Br, and the 58km Saula–Laska double surface asphalt road estimated to cost 348 million Br. The last two projects are the 47km Abus–Alem Ketema double surface asphalt road estimated to cost 376 million Br, and the 72km Mehal Meda–Abus double surface asphalt road estimated to cost 576 million Br.

The construction of all 11 projects is to be fully financed by the government.

The belated Bole road project to commence in weeks

Quote:
Wednesday, 21 September 2011 08:01

By WUDINEH ZENEBE

The Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED) is set to make the final decision on having the belated Bole road construction project underway within the next few weeks. It has been four years since the inception of the Bole road project, which stretches 4.5 kilometers from Bole International Airport to Meskel Square. However, the modern road project was delayed after the authorities were surprised by the cost of the construction which was USD 12.5 million per kilometer.

The project is expected to be financed by a soft loan secured by the Chinese EXIM Bank to the amount of USD 60 million. However, the Prime Minister, Meles Zenawi, requested that the project cost be revised on the basis that it appeared to be a bit exaggerated. Ultimately, the cabinet of Ministers referred the case to MoFED for revision and final ruling.

According to sources close to the matter, MoFED have been gathering information on the project over the last few months. Nevertheless, the Road Authority have not provided any significant, new information, from the one offered to the PM, to MoFED officials. Sources say that the Minister, Sofian Ahmed, is expected to give the go-ahead within the next few weeks.

With some 40 meters wide, the new road is expected to have three different interchanges located around the Rwanda Embassy, Wello Sefer and Olympia, places which usually accommodate high traffic on the road.

The Ethiopian Roads Authority is set to complete 22 road projects spanning 1,688 kms, at a total cost of up to 15 billion birr in the 2011/12 fiscal year. The road projects the authority wants to complete in the current fiscal year are rehabilitation and upgrading of main roads and link roads.

‘Out of these projects 3 of them are being constructed by the Authority itself, 11 of them by local construction companies and 8 by foreign construction companies,’ said Samson Wondimu public relations head at ERA.
Some of the road projects the Authority plans to finish in the current fiscal year are: The 117 kms Assela-Dodola and the 132 kms Dodola-Goba road projects, the 33kms Wezega-Gidole project, the 65 kms Modjo-Arerti project and the 36 kms Arerti- Gobensa project , the 36 kms Shahemene- Wonde Genet project and the 36 kms Wonde Genet – Gemeto project and the 180 kms Kombolcha-Mekaneselam road project.

‘Some of the road projects like the 60 kms Endeto-Gasera and the 180 kms Kombolcha-Mekane Selam road projects are in places where there were previously no roads construction ,while the 104 kms Harar-Jijiga road project is a continuation of the Jijiga- Togochale road project and is expected to connect Ethiopia to the self-declared republic of Somaliland,’ Samson told Capital. He added that the road is expected to facilitate trade between the two countries as well as enabling Ethiopia to use Somaliland’s Berbera Port.

This project still does not make sense to me. It is just a glorified intersection improvment. Money could be used at other areas. The City is asking for trouble by building depressed sections along this section. They are a nightmare to maintain. The expansion divides the two sides of bole road. This road should be a boulevard with wide sidewalks and landscaping. You can never add enough lanes. It is better to upgrade other roads around this arterial to relive the pressure. For the three intersections in question, construct a traffic signal (properly) that runs on solar power. $12.4 mil per KM is a waste of money at this location.

You know, I was thinking in the shower- the Gotera interchange was entirely unnecessary. A simple stop light or traffic circle would have done.
