Agence Française de Développement (AFD) is going to grant 50 million Euros by the beginning of 2015 for the construction of a bus rapid transit (BRT) project.
Officials of AFD told Capital that the proposal review for the funding is being processed and it is in its final stages. “The 50 million euros will be approved by the board of directors by end of December this year or beginning of January next year,” an AFD official said. The officials further added that an international tender will be posted and a contractor will resume work after a year.
Dubbed as BRT line, the feasibility study and proposal for the lanes were done by Egis Rail and Lyon Town Planning Agency (LTPA), which was hired as a consultant in 2005, and presented in October 2010.
The system will contour from Gofa Gabriel, the southern part of the metropolitan area, to Merkato, the central and biggest market center in the country, via Mexico Square. It is also expected to be completed in two years, after contract signing.
The project that was expected to be finalized about three years ago has been delayed for several reasons. The BRT project whose cost is covered by the French government will be established in the pilot stage to expand the mass transport opportunities for the capital city.
Meanwhile, the Ethiopian government is working to modernize and expand the mass transportation system in the metropolis, and the 34km Light Rail Transit (LRT) project is currently in the final stages and is expected to be operational soon.
The electric bus mass transport is a pilot project, supported by Grand Lyon, LTPA (Lyon Town Planning Agency) and SYTRAL (transport authority from Lyon).
In the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two sisters’ cities, Addis Ababa and Lyon (France) in 2009 the Lyon city government has agreed to give support to different sectors for the city’s growth, including mass transportation
