[DJI] Djibouti roads

Djibouti is a small country located at the exit from the Red Sea in the Gulf of Aden. traffic mainly oriented to the sea, and because of weak linkages with neighboring countries has developed road transport. (pictures are taken from other sites, there's not much)

I think it has because of the relatively short distance, it is about 30 km. Difficulty may be that the sea depth ranges from 250-300m.

I think this falls into the domain of intercontinental connections, which in a sense represent the future. if comparable, economically cost-effective would be a bridge or tunnel linking Spain and Morocco.

Liking the pictures, keep them coming.

As we can see that sign is really needed. I am pretty surprised with this modern 2x2 road for one undeveloped african country.

The road system of Djibouti is really very nice; btw this road should be near to the capital of Djibouti?

That first photo is awful.

Is Djibouti the only country that uses both yellow diamond and red triangle road signs?

I see that with a few modern roads they have't yet got around to putting lights atop the poles...

I doubt it , Yemen is becoming increasing unstable and nearby Somalia isn't helping it.
