A total of USD 60 million is required to repair over 23 trains of the Addis Ababa Light Rail in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It is the first light rail and rapid transit in eastern and sub-Saharan Africa. The light rail, which goes in two directions, was built to make up for the lack of transportation in the capital, which is home to four million people. The funding for the 31.6-kilometre-long electrified light rail transportation system was provided by the Chinese Exim Bank.
