Marshall Islands is a series of 29 Coral Atolls made up of 1156 Islands. The sealed road network exists only on the main islands of Majuro, Kwajalein (US Base with Bucholt Airport) and Ebeye with over 50 of the nation’s 65 Kms of sealed road on Majuro.
Roads are mostly unpaved and are made up of coral laterite. Many islands have no or few vehicles and therefore no vehicular roads. Transport around the outer islands is usually by walking track with goods being moved by wheel barrows or push carts on the smaller atolls with larger atolls having one tome pickups
Sealed roads are in generally average condition. Drainage exists but is poorly maintained thereby creating large puddles of water after rain. On the main Island of Majuro traffic is essentially a single lane each way with traffic looping back once the end of the road is reached. Taxis make up 50 % of the vehicle traffic.
