Twenty pothole repairs are planned in various parts of Addis Ababa

 AnyWay Solid Environmental Solutions, Jan 2015

AnyWay, in collaboration with the Addis Ababa City Roads Authority, has embarked on a pothole repair project for the city. The project is a field trial of a special repair technique developed by AnyWay, using ANSS. One of the many advantages of the  system is that it can even be used during the rainy season, as it does not involve the use of hot asphalt mix for the surfacing. In addition, locally available soils are stabilized and compacted to fill the pothole quickly and economically, without the need for large quantities of imported materials. Twenty pothole repairs are planned in various parts of Addis Ababa, the performance of each of the repairs will be evaluated over several months under a variety of challenging conditions. AnyWay‘s pothole repair system has already been successfully implemented by several municipalities in South Africa and we now look forward to expanding its use in Ethiopia.
