Ethiopia is set to upgrade its transport infrastructure with a $234.5 million (£149 million) loan from the African Development Bank.
The money will be used to reconstruct two roads that will connect the nation with neighbouring countries in a bid to improve trade, the Addis Fortune reports.
A 112km route from Bedele to Metu will be upgraded as this is part of a network that connects Addis Ababa with the South Sudan capital Juba.
