    ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA — A linha ferroviária Etiópia-Djibouti, construída pelos chineses, abriu oficialmente em outubro, marcando o último exemplo da cooperação sino-africana. A estrada de ferro de 750 km liga o porto do Mar Vermelho de Djibouti à capital da Etiópia, Addis Abeba. É a primeira ferrovia elétrica da África. Os trens são alimentados por fios aéreos. O trem pode viajar a uma velocidade máxima de 120 km por hora, que é muito mais lenta do que outros comboios de alta velocidade em todo o mundo. A ferrovia deverá reduzir o tempo de condução de sete dias entre os dois lugares para apenas 10 horas. A China já investiu mais de US$20,6 bilhões na Etiópia desde 2005, principalmente em empréstimos com juros baixos para construir infra-estrutura. ---------------------------...

Here is a documentary investigating Spread of HIV along the northern corridor – a major a 1200 kilometer highway that links port of Mombasa in Mombasa town to Kampala, Uganda. From there it feeds to Southern Sudan, Rwanda, DRC, Burundi and Northern Tanzania. http://www.gendawacargo.com/ Kenya Cystoms Clearing AgentsThe Devils Highway” called so due to its notorious accidents and traffic deaths is also a hot spot for the spread of HIV virus by truck drivers. Shipping a container from China to Mombasa port cost less than moving it from Mombasa to Kampala. East Africa is known to have the most expensive transport costs in the world, which make trade expensive leading to low rates of growth and economic activities in the region. Cargo transport within Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda is improving as Governments invest more in infrastructure. With Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia using Mombasa port for their external trade, the transport chain between Mombasa and hinterland is a key area of concern for shippers. The first – or last – link in the chain is the port itself and a key priority for Kenya Ports Authority has been to enable, and encourage, the removal of cargo from the port as quickly as possible. In this regard it has been moderately successful, with container dwell times almost halved in recent years while throughput has risen significantly. By using modern ICT systems, more efficient yard equipment, off-port container stations and, of course, the inland container depots at Kisumu and Nairobi, Kenya Ports Authority is meeting the challenge of speeding the flow of cargo. Having put its own house in order, however, it is also seeking and encouraging improvements elsewhere. Road Network The Kenya Roads Board (KRB) is responsible for the upkeep of 63,000 km of classified roads in Kenya. Only 14% of these are surfaced, the rest being gravel or dirt roads. A long-overdue upgrade of the main highways is now under way. The main highway between Nairobi and Mombasa has already been refurbished, leading to much reduced transit times between the two main centres. Other projects are under way to transform the region’s road network. One is the Mombasa – Nairobi – Addis Ababa Road Corridor, co-financed by the African Development Bank Group, the European Union, and the government of Ethiopia and Kenya. An estimated US$ 500 million is being spent to improve transport links between the two countries. Another project of key importance is the proposed southern by-pass of Mombasa. This will greatly ease the flow of traffic transport north and south as well as encouraging more trade links with northern Tanzania. Kenya Rail Way Network Perhaps even more pressing is the need for an upgraded rail system in Kenya. Most of Kenya’s existing rail system uses 1 metre gauge track dating from the 1890s. Too narrow for the reliable movement of loaded containers. Because of this, less than 4% cent of Mombasa port’s freight goes by rail. Transport costs are generally high because of the dependence on expensive trucking. A more efficient rail network could reduce transport costs by at least 30 per cent, say forecasters. Upgrading the region’s rail network presents huge challenges. Nevertheless, all five members of the East African Community have agreed to build a new standard gauge network. Rail operations in Kenya have been concessioned to Rift Valley Railways (RVR), while Kenya Railways continues to oversee the service. The 1,920 km track between Mombasa and Malaba will be replaced by standard gauge track by 2017, with branchlines to Moyale (for Addis Ababa) and Lodwa (for Juba) at a cost of some US$ 5.2 billion. The railway project will be fully completed by the year 2050. The Mombasa – Malaba – Kampala line is the first of four phases. There will also be a line from Lamu to Lokichogio, which will connect with Juba in South Sudan. These projects are part of Kenya’s Vision 2030 development plan and their importance cannot be overstated. The Port of Mombasa handles about 20 million tonnes of cargo per year. The forecast is only upwards and, without an ugraded rail system, within a few years one truck will have to leave the port every minute of every day to keep up with demand. This is clearly unsustainable, so the modernisation of the rail system is not only necessary but essential. In the long term, the idea of a rail link between Lamu and Douala, in Cameroon, is also being explored. This would reduce haulage time to just four and a half days compared with 25 days by sea.

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. Africa Live: More on this and other stories The track runs parallel to the abandoned Ethio-Djibouti railway, built more than 100 years ago. The BBC's Emmanuel Igunza in Addis Ababa says the new track will initially only run freight services. The passenger trains - which will run each way daily - are to start in three months' time and ticket prices will be announced nearer the time. 'It will transform my business' Getachew Betru, chief executive of Ethiopia Railways, says it will be much cheaper and more reliable than travelling to Djibouti by road. "In Ethiopia currently if you want to bring your container from Hong Kong to Djibouti it will take you maybe two, three weeks. But it will take you more than that to take it from Djibouti to Addis Ababa. It will now take us one day or more," he said. At the opening ceremony on Wednesday, Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn said that the rail line would be a boost to the economy. "It will provide huge benefits to the industrial parks and modern farms that will be built in the future," he said. A businessman at the opening told the BBC that the railway "would transform" his trade in transporting livestock. "It will be easier, more efficient," he said. The railway was 70% financed by China's Exim Bank and built by China Railway Group and China Civil Engineering Construction. Chinese controllers, technicians and station masters are among those staffing the services for the next five year after which Ethiopians will be employed. Mr Getachew told the AFP news agency that their local counterparts are in training. The railway is the first step in a vast 5,000km-long network of rail which Ethiopia hopes to build by 2020, connecting it to Kenya, Sudan and South Sudan. The dream is that one day the railway will extend from Djibouti's coast all the way across Africa to the Atlantic Ocean. ----- An estimated two million people were attending the annual Irrecha thanksgiving event in Bishoftu town southeast of the capital, Addis Ababa. The event took place in one of the country’s most sensitive regions, Oromia, which has seen several months of sometimes deadly protests demanding wider freedoms. Ethiopia’s government acknowledged deaths during Sunday’s event. Through a spokesman, it blamed “people that prepared to cause trouble.” The spokesman’s office said many people were taken to hospitals. It did not provide figures for deaths or injuries. Witnesses said the crush began as protesters chanted anti-government slogans and pushed toward a stage where religious leaders were speaking. Some threw rocks and plastic bottles. Police responded by using tear gas and firing rubber bullets. People tried to flee. Before the stampede, an Associated Press reporter saw a crowd of people holding up crossed wrists in a popular gesture of anti-government protest. The reporter also saw police firing tear gas and, later, several injured people. The crossed-wrists gesture has been widely used as a sign of peaceful resistance and is meant to symbolize being handcuffed by security forces. The gesture was in the spotlight at the Rio Olympics, when Ethiopian marathoner Feyisa Lilesa, who is from the Oromia region, crossed his wrists while finishing in second place. He has not returned to the country since, saying his life could be in danger. Ethiopia’s government, a close security ally of the West, is often accused of silencing dissent, at times blocking internet access nationwide. The months of anti-government protests in several parts of Ethiopia and the sometimes harsh government response has raised international concern. The United States recently spoke out against what it called the excessive use of force against protesters, describing the situation in the country as “extremely serious.” ©Free Ethiopia®مژگان

The Ethiopia - Djibouti railway is one of the mega infrastructure projects on the continent. It connects the heart of Ethiopia with the port of Djibouti. It was built at a cost of 4 billion dollars, most of it funded by China. The railway is anticipated to play a role in transforming economic growth not only in the two nations but in the whole of the Eastern Africa region. CGTN's Girum Chala with the story.

In our second full length video we fly the Triple 7 Sim from the desert city of Dubai to the 'Hot and High' city of Addis Ababa, 7500 feet above sea level in Ethiopia. After a fan request to fly into ADD, we tackle the challenges that the airport's elevation presents to aviators. In the cruise chat, we get Jamie to explain how the sim operates technically including hardware and software information. *Links to software described in the video*: Sim-avionics www.simavionics.com Fly-Elise NG www.fly.elise-NG.net PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!
