SIDA-Amhara, woreda inhabitants build 31kms road in in Enarj Enawga

Bahirdar, December 14, 2006 (WIC) – A 31-kilometer gravel road constructed by SIDA-Amhara Rural Development Program and the community in Enarj Enawga woreda of East Gojjam Zone has gone operational, according to the woreda administration.

Woreda Deputy Administrator, Belete Gessese, told WIC today that the standard gravel road built in the last quarter year has benefited more than 51,000 people.

He said the all weather road interconnects 15 kebeles and links them with the woreda.

The SIDA Amhara Rural Development Program covered over 3.2 million birr of the construction and the public contributed 46,300 birr in labor and material, Belete added.

The road would alleviate the problem of supplying produces to markets in time, the Deputy Administrator said, adding that people residing in the woreda could also benefit from the socio-economic resources as the road connects woreda and sub-woreda towns.
