Road from Weldiya to Mille

image hosted on flickr

weldya-mille by vatse, on Flickr

The first part of the road is the man road between Addis Abeba and Asmara in Eritrea. Currently it's connecting Tigray Region with Addis Abeba.

Right turn to new road to Mille

Picture 133 by vatse, on Flickr

This road to Mille was built instead of some old tracks and most of it has completely new path. Last parts of it were finished in 2012 but it have been opened for some more years cars and trucks using temporary by-passes at places where new road was still under construction. Currently it's the main road connecting port of Djibouti with Tigray and most of Amhara regions. It's also last part of designated Trans-African Highway 6 in Ethiopia to get asphalt cover. Now it's possible to drive all the way from Sudan to Djibouti along asphalt roads.

Road 18 from Mille to Awash

There is customs post south from Mille which is meant for trucks taking roads to Weldiya or to Dessie. Due to this there are huge traffic jams because some trucks are waiting for access to customs parking lot and other trucks continuing the way to Awash try to bypass these avoiding the ongoing trucks on the way to Djibouti.

And road to Dessie going directly. The road to Dessie is part of the road built during Italian occupation which connected port of Assab with Addis Abeba. The current main road through Awash was built some 30 years later. So even today you still have to make a left turn to continue to Awash because the old main road continued directly to Dessie.

Chinese style warning signs; Is this a new standard for all of Ethiopia, or just on roads constructed by Chinese companies?

I'm not sure if there is any standard for traffic signs at all. Probably there is but you can find lots of different styles all around Ethiopia.
Seems that all the signs on and around this motorway would be in Chinese style. Look for http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3831/9...a893e5c6_b.jpg

That is looking seriously good! Very tidy, and to a high standard too. Surface looks good, the central barriers and foliage is a nice touch and a decent hard shoulder too. Good work Ethiopia!
