Ethiopia is set to build yet another highway connecting it to Djibouti; the 250Km Dire Dawa-Dewale road.
The road project, which is currently under design, will upgrade the current gravel road to concrete asphalt and will be another major artery connecting Ethiopia to a sea port, making it a vital route.
Ethiopia currently handles about 98 percent of its import- export business through the port of Djibouti, while a recent sea port project whose construction started recently in Tadjoura, is expected to alleviate the congestion of commodity traffic in the current port. Other road projects that are underway or have already been completed connecting Ethiopia with other neighbouring countries include the 312km Shire-Adi Goshu- Lugdi concrete asphalt road project and the recently completed 100km Assosa-Kurmuk concrete asphalt road which cost 502 million birr.
The 185km Assosa-Metema concrete asphalt road project, which connects yet another Sudanese border town, Gedarif, to Ethiopia had been completed several years ago.
The first phase of the Shire-Adi Goshu-Lugdi project, the156km Shire-Adi Goshu concrete asphalt road, has already been finished at a cost of 616 million birr, while the second phase leading to Lugdi is being constructed by Hunan Hunda Private Limited Company at a cost of 627 million birr.
The project is considered to be very important in light of the growing border trade between the two countries in items like agricultural products and livestock, while the road will also serve as another route for transporting Ethiopian goods for export through Port Sudan.
The 120km Gambella-Etang-Gikawe road, which is being constructed by the Ethiopian Road Corporation (ERC) at an initial cost of 680 million birr, will connect the newly-independent republic of South Sudan to Ethiopia and is slated for completion in June 2013. Other roads are also to be built and presently are in the planning phase. Ethiopia is also constructing a series of roads which will connect it to Kenya, especially to its port city of Mombassa which Ethiopia will use as another outlet for its goods.
Last year, in April 2012, the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, his Kenyan counterpart President Mwai Kibaki and South Sudanese President Salva Kiir Mayardit inaugurated a road project to connect the future port of Lamu to both South Sudan and Ethiopia.
A road project which will construct a road covering 389km and will stretch from the city of Hawassa to the Ethiopian border town of Moyale is underway and another separate road project will construct the 97km Mega-Moyale asphalt road.
Lastly, in 2011 the Ethiopian Roads Authority (ERA) had inaugurated the 63km Jigjiga-Togochale road connecting Ethiopia with the self-declared Republic of Somaliland, and subsequently offering an opportunity to effectively use the port of Berbera.
