Ethiopia-Djibouti Railway brings people closer

Africa's first standard-gauge electrified railroad began operating in January 2018. The Ethiopia-Djibouti Railway Line stretches 752 kilometers, from the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to the Red Sea port of Djibouti. The trains travel at speeds about 120 kilometers per hour, reducing the journey time from three days by road to about 12 hours by train. On a stormy day, CGTN visited the railway's Adama train station in the Oromia region of Ethiopia.
