This has enabled easy access of commuting by the thousands of Ayaha 2 residents who are mostly internally displaced persons.

It now easily connects the Ibrahim Koodbuur and 31st May districts and nearby estates which were hitherto impossible across the river apart from a cumbersome long detour.

According to the engineer, their 2014 programs are at final stages.

This, Eng. Abdikhadar says, includes the new east-west major highway cutting acrros three city boroughs that would immensity ease transport congestious at two major city highways.


This raod starts at the Peace Acedemy and ends at Daami area.

Another one is the state house road bridge which had long succumbed into oblivion hence is now undergoing construction and is expected to end on schedule.

Lastly, according to the city engineer, is the ongoing construction of a priority Irish Cross bridge whose short-cut gravel road connects Hargeisa to Burao.

This bridge is quite important since it has been a major impediment to vehicles plying the route.

Eng. Khadar however explains of a slight hiccup in their schedule of work due to the recent heavy rains.
