The Government of Somaliland has begun a yearning campaign to construct its infrastructure with the groundbreaking development of modern road connecting the towns of Wadaama-goo and Buhodle. The road, that has been named the “Peace Highway” will link three major regions of the eastern side of the country and will be utilized by vehicles transporting commuters and products between Somaliland, Somalia and Ethiopia.

This comes just a year after the start of the construction of a 250km dual carriageway between the Somaliland Port City of Berbera and Ethiopian border, that is being funded by the UAE and the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development Construction Company at a cost of US $400m.

During the groundbreaking ceremony of the new road, Minister for Transport and Road Development in Somaliland Abdullahi Abokor Osman said the construction of the road was a wider mission by the government to improve trade between local traders and also link them with the neighbouring countries.
