On another note can you post these beautiful pictures on this thread too please ? http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1161779&page=5

If you are busy I can do it if you don't mind.Thanks in advance.
Thanks! It was end of workday at Friday when we arrived to ring road so it was getting more busy with every minute when all the people started to drive away for weekend. Not sure if it looks like this with normal traffic.

I didn't knew about this thread. Of course i can do it.

Thank you! I had no idea about this new road. Now it makes sense that they haven't renovated the old road to Kombolcha. The new road has much better access to Tigray and Western Amhara, only Dessie and Kombolcha are missing good connection now.
I hope to use this road next time.

Some streets of Addis Abeba
Names are from Google maps and there could be alternatives for some of these.

Cameroon street at Medhane Alem. It's new and very popular area close to airport.

Here are some road sign pictures from the currently U/C Addis-Adama Expressway, set to be completed in December.

I agree, no doubt because the Chinese are building it, and probably had a significant input into its design. What I fail to understand is how on earth a road can have a different speed limit for each lane! That is impossible to enforce, and no doubt confusing for a motorist not used to that setup!

AFDB to Approve Loan Request for Mojo-Zeway Expressway Project

http://www.2merkato.com/news/alerts/...essway-project

This would be a replacement of Route 6, from Mojo to Zeway. According to Google Earth the distance is only about 90 - 95 kilometers, so 120 km probably means a bypass of Zeway as well. Route 6 connects Addis Ababa with Nairobi.
