Ethiopia and Djibouti have launched the first fully electrified cross-border railway line in Africa

Posted on : Wednesday, 19th October 2016

Ethiopia and Djibouti have launched the first fully electrified cross-border railway line in Africa.

 
It links Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, to the Red Sea port of Djibouti – a stretch of more than 750km (466 miles).
 
Travelling at 120km/h, the new service cuts the journey time down from three days by road to about 12 hours.
 
The $3.4bn (£2.7bn) project was built with the help of funding from a Chinese bank and will have Chinese staff.
