The 16-storey building is expected to cost 500 million Birr, but so far the ERCS has only managed to raise 22.8 millionBr.These fundswere acquired through an SMS lottery game, launched in 2013.

The building will rest on a 4,936sqm plot of land next to the Addis Abeba Spa Services Enterprise along Yohannes St - nearZewditu
Hospital. The plot was granted to the ERCS for free by the Addis Abeba City Administration, in 1997.

It should handle up to 25 million passengers a year.

The Ethiopian Airports Enterprise is going to undertake a major expansion project at the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport passengers’ terminal at a cost of 250 million dollars.

The newly-appointed CEO of the Ethiopian Airports Enterprise, Tewodros Dawit, told The Reporter that in line with the Ethiopian Airlines Vision 2025 development strategy the enterprise is undertaking various airport development projects. The Addis Ababa Bole International Airport Passengers’ expansion project is one of them.

According to Tewodros, the expansion project includes the construction of a new passenger terminal as an extensions of the existing Terminal 1 (domestic and regional terminal) and terminal 2 (international terminal) with all related equipment and the construction of a new VIP passengers’ terminal.

The new terminal will house boarding areas, lounges, recreation centers, shopping malls, offices and other facilities. New boarding gates, boarding bridges, and a new parking area are parts of the expansion project. The new parking area will serve passengers and staff members.

The other major component of the expansion project is the VIP terminal. The first of its type in Ethiopia, the VIP terminal, will be used by leaders, senior government officials, diplomats and other dignitaries. The VIP terminal will have various saloons, lounges, conference rooms, recreation centers, duty-free shops, an IT center and exclusive parking lot.

According to Tewodros, a 250-million-dollar loan has been secured from the government of China. An agreement was signed by the Ethiopian Ministry of Finance and Economic Development and the Chinese government. The Chinese construction firm, China Communications Construction Company (CCCC), will be the contractor for the expansion project. CCCC is a renowned construction company which is building the Adama-Addis Ababa expressway. CCCC is the parent company of the CRBC, another Chinese construction firm that built the Addis Ababa ring road project and a number of other roads in Addis Ababa.

CCCC brokered the loan deal with the Chinese Export-Import (EXIM) Bank. The loan negotiation took a year-and-a-half. An agreement will be signed by the Ethiopian Airports Enterprise and the Chinese EXIM Bank.

The design work of the expansion project is being undertaken by a Singapore company, CPG. According to Tewodros the final design of the expansion work will be completed after two months. Work on the project is expected to commence next March. The expansion work is expected to be finalized within three years.

The Addis Ababa Bole International Airport has two terminals. Terminal 1 is used to accommodate domestic and regional passengers while Terminal 2 is used for long-haul flights. Terminal 2, commonly known as the “new terminal”, was inaugurated ten years ago. It was anticipated to accommodate 5 million passengers a year but today it is handling 6 million passengers. Terminal 1, commonly called the “old terminal”, accommodates 500,000 passengers a year.

Ten years ago only 900,000 passengers used the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport every year. In the past ten years the passenger traffic has been growing by 25 percent each year and reached 6.5 million, surpassing the maximum limit of the airport capacity, 5 million. The Ethiopian Airports Enterprise renovated the domestic terminal (later named Terminal 1) and started to accommodate passengers enroute to regional destinations there. This helped to mitigate the congestion at the international terminal (Terminal 2).

When the planned expansion work is finalized, the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport will handle up to 25 million passengers a year. “We expect the passenger traffic to reach 22 million by 2025,” Tewodros said.
“Addis Ababa is a gateway to Africa. We are close to Europe, the Middle East and the Far East. So we want to link Africa to these regions,” Tewodros said. “Ethiopian Airlines is the leading airline in Africa and it is playing a big role in connecting Africa with the rest of the world and we want to have airports that can accommodate the growing demand.

Tewodros said the enterprise will soon put up a tender to hire a consultant that would supervise the construction work.

...

The consultant that the enterprise will hire for the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport expansion project will also undertake the study on the mega hub project. The consultant would undertake feasibility, technical, and financial studies as well as produce an airport master plan. The consultant will be tasked to study the integration of the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport with the mega hub.

Chinese firm to build NIB’s new HQ
August 30, 2013
Posted by Mamo Gebrehiwot




Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
- Nib International Bank (NIB) and Nib Insurance Company signed an agreement with a Chinese construction firm China Railway No.3 for the construction of the first phase of a 35-storey building that will host both the insurance and bank as their headquarters.
This represents the vision the two companies had when they first started and it marks a big step forward that they have taken to accomplish that vision by working tirelessly, it was stated at the signing ceremony.
The headquarters will be built on a 3,682 square meter plot secured from the Addis Ababa City Administration and is located behind the National Theater which is often called the financial hub of the country.
“I cannot disclose how much will be invested in the construction of the building, but we will be able to give out that information in due course,” said Kibru Fondja, who was officially announced as the new president of the bank at Thursday’s signing ceremony.
It is two years since the design for the HQ was completed and announced – however, officials of the bank and insurance company claim that the delay in the commencement of construction was because their request for more land from the Addis Ababa City Administration was pending. The Administration has now approved their request for an additional 882 square meters. “The time it will take to build the HQ will depend on the contractor, but we hope and would be very happy if it can be accomplished within three years,” Kibru said.
The construction will be completed in two phases.
“We are yet to announce a bid for the second phase of the construction. We haven’t set the exact time for that,” he said.
The two financial institutions also plan to construct other edifices in major regional towns of the country in the near future.

Brazil Development Bank Gives $1 Billion to Ethiopia Rail
By William Davison - May 27, 2013 10:08 AM ET

Ethiopia will receive $1 billion in funding from the Brazilian Development Bank to build a section of a railway that will be extended to connect to neighboring South Sudan, a Foreign Ministry official said.
Andrade Gutierrez Participacoes SA of Brazil will build the link running from the capital, Addis Ababa, to Jimma about 439 kilometers (273 miles) to the southwest, Taye Atskeselassie, director general for the Americas at the ministry, said in an interview on May 24.
The bank “is willing to finance the project,” he said after Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn met Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. “The technical side has been finalized, it’s only the financing part; it’s a matter of the details.” Construction will begin “soon,” he said.
Ethiopia, Africa’s second-most populous nation, needs funding to build 4,744 kilometers of electrified railway lines at a cost of 110.8 billion birr ($5.9 billion) as it seeks to develop a cheaper alternative to moving goods by road. Economic growth may slow to 6.5 percent this year and next, compared with average growth of 8.7 percent over the past five years, according to the International Monetary Fund.
Export-Import Bank of China signed a loan agreement worth nearly $3 billion for a railway from Addis Ababa to the port of Doraleh in neighboring Djibouti, the state-owned Ethiopian Radio and Television Agency reported last week.
Turkish Funding
The government of Turkey is funding a separate route, while Ethiopia is negotiating with Russia and India to finance and build other rail projects, Ethiopian Railways Corp. said on April 26.
Officials from Petroleo Brasileiro SA, Brazil’s state-run oil company, attended last week’s meeting, Taye said. “They are very much interested in doing business as well here, but no specific issues have been raised at this time,” he said.
Hailemariam and Rousseff signed cooperation agreements on air transport, science and technology, education and agriculture, Ethiopia’s State Minister of Foreign Affairs Berhane Gebrekristos said.
“This is a turning point in Ethiopian-Brazilian relations,” Berhane said.
Ethiopia operates a state-led economy and is prioritizing investment in infrastructure as it seeks to transform one of the world’s least-developed countries into a middle-income nation by 2025, according to the government.

India Exim Bank approves $300 million loan to Ethiopia


By Hadra Ahmed | IANS - ADDIS ABABA

15th June 2013 06:22 PM

The Export-Import Bank of India has approved a $300 million worth of line of credit to Ethiopia, paving the way for construction of a railway line linking this landlocked country in the Horn of Africa to a port city in neighbouring Djibouti. An agreement in this regard was signed between T.C.A. Ranganathan, chairman and managing director of Exim Bank, and Ahmed Shide Mehamed, Ethiopian State Minister of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED), in New Delhi Thursday.

"Ethiopia being a landlocked nation, the railway link to a port city will provide impetus to its growth, particularly in the northern region of the country," the minister said. The railway line is the first part of a larger regional project to improve railway connectivity in Ethiopia and other east African countries, he added.

The loan approval had been under discussion since the visit of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Ethiopia in 2010 under the African Union Region Development Scheme, which was initiated by India. The proposed railway link will connect the city of Asaita, some 670 km of the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, to the port city of Tajourah in neighbouring Djibouti.

The link is expected to improve regional connectivity and boost growth in the east African country, according to Debo Tunka, deputy chief executive officer and head of infrastructure development at the Ethiopian Railway Corporation (ERC).

"India as always is playing a great role in the development of Ethiopian infrastructure by keeping its promises," Tunka told IANS. The railway link will initially be utilised for transporting goods but later it will be opened for passenger traffic. About 50 km of the 210 km line will be in Djibouti, while the rest will be in northern Ethiopia.

"The new line will be very important for Ethiopia because it will give us an access to a second port and boost economic activities in the country," Tunka said.

[...]

The credit line would entail concessional funds at an interest rate of 1.75 percent.

Ring Road Enters Final Stretch

ring road (northern section) story ...



http://allafrica.com/stories/201402102114.html
The Reporter (Addis Ababa)
By Yonas Abiye, 8 February 2014


The expensive and long-delayed Addis Ababa ring road project is set to begin the final phase of construction, for the section stretching from the Addisu Gebeya area to the Megenagna Terminal. On announcing the plans, the Addis Ababa City Road Authority (AACRA) also detailed the controversial demolition of the famous Shiromeda market center, well known as a major tourist spot.

Residential houses and businesses will also be removed as part of the ongoing road construction. The Shiromeda marketing center is one of the biggest in the capital, exclusively serving locally-made traditional attire. It sees thousands of visitors each day, including sellers, buyers and weavers, and many micro and small enterprises depend on the existence of this frenetic market place. Apart from being a business center, Shiromeda is regarded as a prime tourist location in Addis Ababa, a place where many foreign visitors seek to purchase original cotton-made clothes or to see the traditional weavers in action. The construction of Addis Ababa's ring road was initiated in 1998 and had a planned completion date of 2003.

With a view of implementing the city master plan and enhancing peripheral development, currently 37km of the ring road has been completed. However, the road is still more than ten years behind the original schedule, for a variety of reasons as claimed by the Authority. According to both ACCRA and the city administration, the clearing of existing infrastructure such as water pipes, telecommunication and power lines have impeded the project.

The construction of the ring road has been undertaken in three major phases, with a view to connect all the main gates in and out of Addis Ababa with all the other regions.

The China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) is undertaking the project at an original cost of some USD 76 million (at the time equivalent to around 780 million Birr).

However, due to the delays the total project is expected to cost more than five times the original budget. Phase Two has already been built at a cost of two billion birr.

According to the latest reports issued by city administration, the final phase of the ring road is estimated to cost around 1.5 billion birr, which would inflate the gross cost to a hefty 3.5 billion birr. The drastic price hike of construction materials, compensation claims and other related incidents are the main factors in the severe increment, according to the city administration. In addition, both ACCRA and the city administration have been accused of the slow handling of issues relating to compensation and delayed provision of infrastructure-related requirements.



they did sign a contract for the desgn/contruction of a 28 km "outer ring road" last month ... it extends north-east (towards legetafo) & west (towards lebu) from where the adama expressway ends...

Addis to get connected to new Highway

Addis Ababa, 11 March 2014 (WIC) - The construction of two road projects covering 28.1km that link the Addis Ababa-Adama Highway with Addis Ababa in two directions has been launched, the Ethiopian Roads Authority (ERA) announced.

According to AddisFortune, the Akaki-IT Park/Goro/ and Akaki-Lebu roads are being undertaken at a cost of over 4.6 billion Br, ERA said.
The 14.5-kms Akaki-IT Park (Goro) project links the Addis Ababa-Adama Highway with the eastern and northeastern part of Addis Ababa, while the 13.6-kms Akaki- Lebu road will interconnect the road with western and northwestern Addis Ababa.

The construction of the roads, which will have six lanes, includes the construction of six big bridges, four interchanges and a railway crossing, among others.
Some 75 pc of the total cost for construction of the roads will be covered by the China EXIM Bank and the balance by the government.
The projects are scheduled to be completed within 33 months.
