The Ethio-Djibouti Railway, known as the Ethio-Djibouti Standard Gauge Railway, is a modern railway system that connects Ethiopia’s capital city of Addis Ababa with Djibouti’s port. China Railway Group operates the railway since it was officially inaugurated in 2017.

Covering approximately 750 kilometers, the railway is built to standard gauge specifications, capable of transporting up to 3,500 passengers and 5,000 metric tons of cargo daily. This infrastructure project provides an efficient way of transportation for goods and people between Ethiopia and Djibouti.

Before the construction of the new railway, the only means of transportation between Addis Ababa and Djibouti was via a narrow-gauge railway that was over a century old and needed modernization. The Ethio-Djibouti Railway has improved trade and economic ties between Ethiopia and Djibouti, as the port of Djibouti serves as Ethiopia’s main gateway for international trade.

Overall, the Ethio-Djibouti Standard Gauge Railway is an essential infrastructure project that has the potential to boost economic growth and improve transportation links between Ethiopia and Djibouti.
