Bole Road is the main road from the airport to Meskel Square. All visitors including dignitaries coming to the African Union summits will first travel on Bole Road to enter the city making this route the one of the most important streets in Africa.
Due to the recent upgrade of Bole Road, a drastic improvement has been made to allow for better movement of vehicular traffic. This is a prominent road which should be recognised on the international stage representing not just Addis Ababa or even Ethiopia but in fact it should be an international SYMBOL FOR THE UNION OF AFRICA as a whole. There presents an opportunity for a second phase of upgrade which is more ambitious and fitting to its prestigious obligation.
