Awash Woldia/Hara Gebeya Railway Project is a new railway line being constructed between the Ethiopian towns Awash and Woldia. Ethiopian Railway Corporation (ERC), the owner of the project, is investing $1.7bn in the project. The new line will be completed by April 2018. The new railway line will connect northern Ethiopia with central region.
The Ethiopian Government has been undertaking several transportation projects as part of a five-year growth and transformation plan (GTP), which aims to enhance the transportation network within the country by connecting to adjacent countries and ports. It will provide efficient mobility and improve the export and import activities, boosting the economic development. National Railway Network of Ethiopia (NRNE) is one of the several projects constituted in the plan.
ERC has recognised eight railway routes as significant for development. These routes will have a total length of approximately 5,060km, including buffer.
Building railway line project, tunnel construction is necessary. Self drilling anchor system is an economical and efficient way for enhancing stability of geotechnical engineering. It combines drilling, grouting and anchoring together, bonds to soil layer, stabilizes stratum and then reaches to the effect of supporting projects. With novel structure, advanced technology, reliable quality, strong adaptability and good durability, self drilling anchor system will have vast potential for future development.
