ASER executes restoration of Statue

ASER Construction Plc has successfully executed the restoration of the statue of Abune Petros to its original place on Sunday February 6, 2016; after three years of temporary sheltering at the National Museum.

It has been recalled that, the statue was relocated from its original place three years ago due to the construction of Addis Ababa Light Railway Transit Project by Ethiopian Railway Corporation and Wube Berha-Minilik Square-Abune Petros RA-Autobus Terra Asphalt Road Project by ASER Construction Plc.

On the inauguration ceremony, it was disclosed that ASER commenced the restoration work on December 15, 2015 and completed successfully right on schedule.

“We are all proud that the restoration work was fully handled by Ethiopians,” said Engineer Fikade Haile, General Manager of Addis Ababa Road Authority on the ceremony, adding that ASER Construction took very care and safety measures during restoration of the statue making sure that the intensity of vibration caused due to the movement of the light trail beneath the statue would cause no harm on it. In addition to that, the re-installation of the statue took space into consideration for visitors including persons with disability; as the enclosure is protected from the heavy traffic at the site.

HE Engineer Aisha Mohamme, Ministry of Culture and Tourism, HE Diriba Kuma, Mayor of Addis Ababa City Administration, Yonas Desta, Director General of Authority for Research and Conservation of Cultural Heritage, Dr. Getachew Betru, Ethiopian Railway Corporation General Manager, Eng.
