Ethio-Djibouti Railway

Phases I and II of Ethio-Djibouti Railway Supervision Conclude

February 29, 2024 (EDR) The ten-day supervision and discussion forum held at Ethio-Djibouti Railway centers, stations, and workshops across Ethiopia has successfully concluded.

The Ethio-Djibouti Railway (EDR) Senior Management Supervision Team, led by CEO Abdi Zenebe(Ph.D.)  conducted a comprehensive review of the operational dynamics of the railway stations. 

The team noted that all centers, stations, and workshops have successfully transitioned from the Chinese management contractor (MC) and are now providing reliable services independently.

Several administrative issues were raised during the supervision, including the provision of spare parts and office equipment, vehicle shortages, employee deployment in the new organizational structure, and employee benefits.

The supervision journey, which commenced at the Adama railway station, concluded at Dewanle. Twenty-eight presentations and reports were delivered by centers, stations, and workshops regarding passenger and freight operations, maintenance activities, and the 2024 plan. 

The supervision held over the past ten days has demonstrated that the Ethio-Djibouti Railway is operating at a safe service delivery level.

The team believes that the issues raised by the railway stations can be addressed in the short, medium, and long term.

The railway transport service, a symbol of the strong friendship between Ethiopia and Djibouti, requires significant coordination to maintain its profitability.

The supervisory team encourages the management leadership and all staff to continue their tireless efforts towards this goal.

Future supervision work will be conducted to assess the status of railway stations in Lebu, Sebeta, and Djibouti stations.
