Most roads that were temporarily closed for traffic are re-opening as the Addis Ababa Light Rail Project makes remarkable progress.
The Ethiopian Railways Corporations said that laying rails is taking place as per the schedule.
The Corporation added the roads from Abune Petros to Merkato and St. George to Afincho Ber will be open for traffic once the rainy season ends.
The AALRP is 73 per cent complete, with installation of electric lines and construction of boarding stations also well underway.
Dejene Tefera, Corporate Communication Services Head, said a bid will be issued to hire a competent international company to manage the administrative affairs of the light rail system.
He added the first tram which was recently manufactured in China will make its maiden appearance in Addis Ababa this September.
