Top 10 African countries with quality road networks



q1 (1)

The Governments of African countries with quality roads have much invested in them to contribute to sustainable development.

Infrastructure plays a significant role in the development of any nation and its overall economic growth.

If the roads are not good, access to essential services such as medical care or transportation of agricultural produce would be significantly affected.

It is, therefore, necessary to note that there cannot be fast growth without proper infrastructure and roads are key players.

The following are the countries that made it into the top ten list according to the Global Economy analysis.

1. Namibia

The first country on the list is Namibia with the average value points being 5.24. The country took position 22 in the global ranking with the 2019 latest value being 5.3 points. The establishment of the Roads Authority in April 2000 greatly attributed to the progress in Namibia in terms of road infrastructure. This inherently aided in its socio-economic development.

2. Egypt

The average value points of Egypt from 2006 to 2019 was 3.47 points with the highest being 5.1 points in 2019 and the lowest in 2013 being 2.74. The latest value in 2019 gave it the 29th place in the global ranking position out of 141 countries.

3. Rwanda

The average value points from 2010 to 2019 were 4.76. The effort by the government and aids from China, the European Union, and others have contributed to the quality of roads and infrastructure seen in the country today.

4. Mauritius

Mauritius is an island country which is considered to be Africa’s most democratic nation. The roads are also well maintained, which is an advantage for the country since it is a major tourist destination island. The average value points for the nation were 4.45 points, and the latest 2019 value was 4.7. It is among the top fifty in the global ranking position in 2019.

5. Morocco

The rural infrastructure investments that have been made by the government have much enabled this nation to raise even its global position beating countries such as Belgium, Ireland, and Italy in the ranking. The average value points for the nation were 4.02, and its latest value in 2019 was 4.7 points.

6. South Africa

The N2 is the longest road in South Africa and covers a distance of 2,255 kilometres (1,401 miles). The route runs from Cape Town through Port Elizabeth, East London, and Durban to Ermelo.
