The First Concrete Road is constructed in Addis Ababa, Akaki Kaliti Sub city
Addis Ababa Roads Authority announced that it has built the first concrete road of its kind in the country. The Authority’s executive officer Engineer Fekade Haile said that the concrete road is capable of giving service without any repair for up to thirty years.
The concrete road is built on the 300 meters road that stretches from Kaliti square to Hana Mariam which was previously been known for its repeated repair.
It is said that the concrete road’s construction is 30 % more costly than the asphalt road. But due to its durability, the Authority has decided to build concrete roads at selected locations in Addis next year to cut cost of repeated repair.
