Bishoftu Asphalt Road

There is a great improvement towards the expansion of road networks in our city. Especially, from the starting year of Urban Local Government Development Program (ULGDP) in the year 2000/2008, the significant change is made to road network development in relation to the construction of cobblestone at every part of the city. Currently, the city is accessed to 24km asphalt, 127.9km cobblestone and 251.2km gravel roads.

Extensive Drainage SystemEven though, the length of drains in the city is not matched with the existing road networks and built up area, the construction of drainage network is existed at good condition because of the current ULGDP project operated on different infrastructure works being the city`s topography is dominated by different hills, the exposure to flood and runoff water is very common to reverse the negative impact of flood runoff water the construction of drainage is very essential.

The inventory report of the municipality asset management plan indicates that 240.25km different types of drainage are available in the city
