Paper presented at the 21st Annual South African Transport Conference 15 - 18 July 2002 "Towards building capacity and accelerating delivery", CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria, South Africa.
Mozambique is a large country, of moderate to humid climate, with an area of about 799 - 390 km2 and a population of 17.2 million inhabitants. Road transport is the main mode of transport and constitutes the medium of access to other modes (DNEP, 1998). The road network comprises 28,460 km, of which 19 % are paved roads and 81% are unpaved (including earth and gravel engineered roads). The low density of roads (less than 40
m/km2) is a clear demonstration of the current and future challenges faced to maintain, improve and extend the existing road network.
