Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the Kombolcha-Gundowein Major Road Link
In 2001 Aurecon undertook the EIA study for the Kombolcha to Gundowein Major Road Link Project for the Ethiopian Roads Authority (ERA).
In addition to the construction of a road link, the project required the construction of a new bridge across the Blue Nile River and will make it possible to directly link the Kombolcha and Bahrdar areas for the first time.
The project also entailed the identification and quantification of the potential impacts that the road would have on the bio-physical, social and economic environment along its route. Aurecon also completed cost estimates for the mitigation of potentially negative impacts.
