New light rail system in Addis Ababa

A light rail system currently under construction in Addis Ababa promises to be a welcome addition to the morning commute in the Ethiopian capital, one of the world’s fastest growing metropolises where the population is currently expanding at an annual rate of 3.8%.

The light rail network is set to offer greater comfort and capacity to commuters in the capital, a city in which the main form of public transport is currently provided by an informal network of minibuses, endearingly referred to by locals as ‘blue donkeys’.
