The 32km light-rail project that had been under construction in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, finally opened earlier last month. The first light-rail system in Sub - Saharan Africa.
The system, which will expand to total 39 stations across the city, is expected to carry 15,000 people per hour in one direction. The infrastructure project was built over three years by a Chinese company after the Ethiopian government secured 85% of funding from the Export-Import Bank of China.
Cars are air-conditioned. For ticket from the Stadium to Megenagna I paid 2 birr.
