The construction of Bahir Dar Abay Bridge is officially commenced today, Ethiopian Road Authority (ERA) announced.

Demeke Mekonnen, deputy prime minister of Ethiopia and other government officials have attended the Commencement of Construction which took place in Bahar Dar, the capital of the Amhara Regional State.

The government of Ethiopia will be covering the entire cost of the project which is estimated to be 400 million birr is totally covered by the Ethiopian government according to Samson Wondimu, communication head at ERA.

The Chinese firm China Communication Construction Company (CCCC) secured the project to the Bridge.

The Bahir Dar Abay bridge will be the longest bridge in Ethiopia once completed, taking over that claim from the 319m Bashilo River Bridge that opened for traffic on October 2006.

The construction of this new bridge is to replace the 60-year-old existing bridge, ‘Bahir Dar Abay‘ that has deteriorated and aged. The Ethiopian Roads Authority had two years ago hired CCCC to maintain the old bridge.
