Chad: Chad Transportation Profile 2012






Chad Transportation Profile 2012

Chad's main economic constraint is its lack of direct access to a port, resulting in inflated prices for imports. This problem is exacerbated by the lack of adequate infrastructure and ineffective domestic logistical resources. In order to counter these shortfalls, the government has maintained a road maintenance fund, which has enabled periodic maintenance of 3 749 km (525 km of asphalt roads and 3 224 km of earth roads) of Chad's 4 000 km network. The continued asphalting of the major road links has brought the length of asphalted roads up to 1 089 km. By 2011, the government hopes to build 1 554 km of asphalted national trunk roads and 4 000 km of maintained earth trunk roads, and to rehabilitate 4 000 km of rural tracks.
