ETHIOPIA: The government has selected Ramboll to help it to develop a strategic infrastructure plan for Addis Ababa. The World Bank funded project focuses on sustainable urban development as the capital is experiencing a sharp increase in air pollution and traffic congestion.

Ramboll is the lead consultant in a consortium with two Italian companies and a local subcontractor. The consortium will assess the travel demand patterns and transport conditions in order to identify transport strategies with the aim of developing more low-carbon alternatives to private car use. Ramboll’s Smart Mobility division hopes to develop a demand-based transport model and plan for future infrastructure projects in the city to 2030.
