And yet, a few big-deal projects, including the Addis Ababa-Djibouti Railways, got their acts together and managed to open in the just ended 2016.
According to Wired, the rail line that opened in October is a pretty big deal for Ethiopia, which, it said, has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and for its capital Addis Ababa. The rail line has cut travel times between Addis Ababa and Djibouti from three days to a mere 12 hours.
The rest six most majestic infrastructure projects of 2016 are World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York; SR 520 Floating Bridge in Seattle, Washington; Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland; Panama Canal Expansion Project in Panama; avuz Sultan Selim Bridge in Istanbul; and Second Avenue Subway in New York.
