There is an interesting Chinese article above the Djibouti Port Line floating around the internet. I will post the diagrams here, the full article (only 3 pages) can be viewed via this link.



Tracks shown in dashed lines are plans for future expansion.
This article was originally published in the December 2015 issue of the Pioneering with Science & Technology Journal.

Le ministre djiboutien de l’équipement et des transports, Mohamed Abdoulkader Moussa, et son homologue éthiopien, Ahmed Shide, ont conjointement parrainé jeudi dernier à Nagad la cérémonie de lancement des opérations commerciales de la nouvelle ligne ferroviaire reliant Djibouti et Addis-Abeba. Le ministre éthiopien des entreprises publiques, Girma Amente, le directeur général de “Ethio-Djibouti Railway’’, Tilahun Sarka, le directeur général de la société chinoise (CCECC/CREC JV) chargée de la gestion du train, Zhang Zhenhai, des ambassadeurs, des parlementaires ainsi que plusieurs autres personnalités djiboutiennes et éthiopiennes ont participé à cette cérémonie.

Un siècle après la mise en œuvre de la première ligne ferroviaire entre les deux pays, et plus d’une décennie après son interruption totale, la ligne ferroviaire reliant Djibouti à Addis-Abeba est désormais opérationnelle.

Justement, jeudi matin à Nagad, le ministre djiboutien de l’équipement et des transports, Mohamed Abdoulkader Moussa, et son homologue éthiopien, Ahmed Shide, ont conjointement procédé au lancement officiel des opérations commerciales du nouveau chemin de fer électrifié. L’événement était marqué par le départ d’un train voyageur reliant Nagad à Labu en Ethiopie. Après la lecture d’un verset du Saint Coran, suivie d’un mot de bienvenue, le ministre des transports de la république fédérale et démocratique d’Ethiopie, Ahmed Shide a pris la parole. Il a rendu hommage au chef de l’Etat djiboutien, Ismaïl Omar Guelleh, et au Premier ministre éthiopien, Hailemariam Desalegn, pour leur leadership entrepris simultanément afin de faciliter la réalisation de ce grand projet d’envergure.

Des propos similaires ont été tenus par le directeur général de “Ethio-Djibouti Railway’’ Tilahun Sarka et celui de la société gestionnaire (CCECC/CREC JV) Zhang Zhenhai.

…Le chemin de fer, maillon indispensable aux infrastructures portuaires. Quant au ministre djiboutien de l’équipement et des transports, Mohamed Abdoulkader Moussa, il a indiqué que le retour de la circulation du train est un événement dont la portée historique n’échappe à personne. «La réalisation de la nouvelle liaison ferroviaire électrique de 750 km entre Djibouti et Ethiopie témoigne de la qualité du leadership des deux pays. Elle consacre en effet la vision économique du président de la république, Ismaïl Omar Guelleh et du défunt premier ministre éthiopien, Feu Meles Zenawi, et de son successeur, le premier ministre Hailemariam Desalegn», a-t-il déclaré avant d’ajouter que le chemin de fer est le maillon indispensable aux infrastructures portuaires. Il a en outre souligné que les travaux de connexion entre le chemin de fer et le terminal conteneur de Doraleh (DCT) sont en cours de réalisation.

«Concernant le DMP, le port polyvalent de Doraleh, le démarrage des travaux est prévu durant ce mois de janvier et durera de 4 à 6 mois. Enfin, pour le terminal pétrolier d’Horizon, les négociations sont en cours avec la même société chinoise. Un comité technique composé de toutes les parties prenantes est mis sur pied pour coordonner la mise en œuvre de ce projet d’envergure. Il est envisagé de faire la connexion avec le dépôt d’Awach en même temps que celle du terminal pétrolier», a dit en substance le ministre Mohamed Abdoulkader Moussa.

Par la suite, son homologue éthiopien et lui-même ont procédé à la coupure du ruban marquant le lancement des opérations commerciales. Sur ce, le train voyageur reliant Nagad à Labu, en Ethiopie, a pris le départ.



Ils ont dit …

Ahmed Shide, ministre éthiopien des transport:- «Aujourd’hui est un grand jour pour moi de voir l’ouverture de l’exploitation du train pour la population et les marchandises. Je rends hommage au Président de la République de Ismaïl Omar Guelleh, au regretté premier ministre Meles Zenawi, et au premier ministre Hailé Mariam Desalegn pour leur grand leadership entrepris simultanément afin de faciliter la réalisation de ce grand projet d’envergure. Vous savez, le train représente le lien historique entre nos deux pays. La mise en exploitation de la nouvelle infrastructure ferroviaire est propice au renforcement des liens d’amitié unissant nos deux peuples. Cette initiative est bénéfique pour l’intégration économique de nos deux pays sur tous les plans. Ainsi, je profite de l’occasion pour exhorter les populations djiboutiennes et éthiopiennes, installées le long du réseau ferré, de veiller au bon déroulement des activités du train ».

Mohamoud Robleh Dabar, directeur général de la SDCF :- « La nouvelle ligne ferroviaire, reliant Djibouti et Addis-Abeba, a été inaugurée par le chef de l’Etat djiboutien et le premier ministre éthiopien, il y’a quelque temps. Ensuite, la phase des tests sur la fiabilité du train ont duré pendant quatre mois. Cette phase est suivie d’une période d’évaluation de la sécurité ferroviaire, et de la réception des matériels roulants sur la voie ferrée électrifiée. Après le lancement officiel des opérations commerciales par les ministres des transports des deux pays, la nouvelle ligne de chemin de fer sera connectée avec les différents ports et terminaux de Djibouti. Elle peut faciliter l’acheminement de 4 millions de tonnes de marchandises et 2 millions de passagers par an. De tels volumes iront croissants d’une année à l’autre. La perspective en dit long sur le modèle d’intégration régionale que représentent Djibouti et l’Ethiopie ».

Djibouti's equipment and transport minister, Mohamed Abdoulkader Moussa, and his Ethiopian counterpart, Ahmed Shide, jointly sponsored last Thursday in Nagad the launch ceremony of the commercial operations of the new railway line connecting Djibouti and Addis Ababa. Ethiopian Minister of Public Enterprises, Girma Amente, Director General of Ethio-Djibouti Railway, Tilahun Sarka, General Manager of Chinese Company (CCECC / CREC JV) in charge of train management, Zhang Zhenhai, Ambassadors , parliamentarians and several other Djiboutian and Ethiopian personalities participated in this ceremony.

A century after the implementation of the first railway line between the two countries, and more than a decade after its total interruption, the railway line connecting Djibouti to Addis Ababa is now operational.

On Thursday morning in Nagad, Djibouti's equipment and transport minister, Mohamed Abdoulkader Moussa, and his Ethiopian counterpart, Ahmed Shide, jointly launched the commercial operations of the new electrified railway. The event was marked by the departure of a passenger train connecting Nagad to Labu in Ethiopia. After reading a verse from the Holy Qur'an, followed by a word of welcome, the Minister of Transport of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, Ahmed Shide, took the floor. He paid tribute to Djibouti Head of State Ismaïl Omar Guelleh and Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn for their simultaneous leadership to facilitate the realization of this major project.

Similar comments were made by the managing director of "Ethio-Djibouti Railway" Tilahun Sarka and that of the managing company (CCECC / CREC JV) Zhang Zhenhai.

... The railway, essential link to port infrastructure. As for the Djiboutian Minister of Equipment and Transport, Mohamed Abdoulkader Moussa, he said that the return of train traffic is an event whose historical significance escapes no one. "The construction of the new 750 km electric rail link between Djibouti and Ethiopia is testament to the quality of the leadership of both countries. It spends the economic vision of the President of the Republic, Ismaïl Omar Guelleh and the late Ethiopian Prime Minister, Fire Meles Zenawi, and his successor, Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, "he said before adding that the railway is the essential link to port infrastructures. He further noted that connection work between the railway and the Doraleh Container Terminal (DCT) is underway.

"Concerning the DMP, Doraleh's multipurpose port, work is scheduled to start during this month of January and will last from 4 to 6 months. Finally, for the Horizon oil terminal, negotiations are underway with the same Chinese company. A technical committee composed of all stakeholders is set up to coordinate the implementation of this major project. It is planned to connect with the Awach depot at the same time as the oil terminal, "
said Minister Mohamed Abdoulkader Moussa.

Subsequently, his Ethiopian counterpart and himself cut the ribbon marking the launch of the commercial operations. On this, the passenger train connecting Nagad to Labu, Ethiopia, took the departure.

They said …

Ahmed Shide, Ethiopian Minister of Transport: - "Today is a great day for me to see the opening of the operation of the train for the population and goods. I pay tribute to the President of the Republic of Ismaïl Omar Guelleh, to the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, and to Prime Minister Haile Mariam Desalegn for their great leadership undertaken simultaneously to facilitate the realization of this major project. You know, the train represents the historical link between our two countries. The development of the new railway infrastructure is conducive to strengthening the bonds of friendship uniting our two peoples. This initiative is beneficial for the economic integration of our two countries at all levels. Thus, I take this opportunity to urge the people of Djibouti and Ethiopia, installed along the rail network, to ensure the smooth running of the train activities.

Mohamoud Robleh Dabar, director general of the SDCF: - "The new railway line, connecting Djibouti and Addis Ababa, was inaugurated by the Djiboutian head of state and the Ethiopian prime minister some time ago. Then, the testing phase on the reliability of the train lasted for four months. This phase is followed by a period of evaluation of rail safety, and the reception of rolling stock on the electrified railway. After the official launch of the commercial operations by the transport ministers of both countries, the new railway line will be connected with the different ports and terminals of Djibouti. It can facilitate the transport of 4 million tonnes of goods and 2 million passengers a year. Such volumes will increase from year to year. The prospect speaks volumes about the regional integration model that Djibouti and Ethiopia represent. "

One thing that is missing in all of these new places is greenery. Why can't plant some trees or put some follower. Put some live into these places. T

I agree, unfortunately Djibouti is a place where a culture of landscaping doesn't exist.

Smiths Detection technology has been selected by the Ethiopian Railways to secure the infrastructure on a key rail link connecting Ethiopia and the port at Djibouti.

Under the contract, Smiths Detection will install a range of 39 scanners to prevent possible threats at 16 major stations along the route.

Scanner models being deployed include 18 HI-SCAN 6040i; 12 HI-SCAN 9075HR; and nine HI-SCAN 145180-2is devices.

These scanners will be used to carry out high-speed, accurate screening for hand baggage, larger items of luggage and cargo.

Smiths Detection EMEA vice-president Tony Tielen said: “This train link is expected to be hugely beneficial to the development of industry in Ethiopia and we are privileged to have the opportunity to help protect such a strategically significant route.

“Ensuring that threats do not infiltrate mass transport networks is essential to keep people safe, maintain public confidence and keep economies going.

“It is our most significant railway security contract to date and demonstrates how we are continuing to strengthen our position in the urban security sector.”

The 750km long rail line connects the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa with the sea in nearly ten hours, serving as a key trade link for this landlocked country.

Earlier, trucks were used to transport cargo to the Djibouti port, a process that took nearly two to three days.

Smiths Detection secured this contract through a competitive tender process, which was based on technical evaluation, reliability, and reputation.

Deliveries of the scanners and their deployment will be carried out in June and July.

Part if it starting from 1:10 is in French. In the first half, the video said that they aimed to connect the railway to the port by the end of this year.

It is visible that in March most earthworks were done, that the access road directly connecting the DCT head with the DCT spur lines is under preparation and mostly ready. One could also see that preparations for the track-laying of two DCT lines were underway. That was back in March 2018. If I extrapolate that for June 2018, then most of the work might be done now and cargo-trains might be able to go for the DCT in the next few months. Which would make the cargo transport from Djibouti to Ethiopia easier, cheaper and more competitive.
  • In another Google Earth development, the images of the Furi-Labu station date now to the 9 May 2018. In particular the access road seemed to be (almost) ready in May. We knew that this access road was built through several images posted here in the past - but now we also have the satellite images
