Timor-Leste Road Network
For information on Timor-Leste Road Network contact details, please see the following link:
According to the ADB national road network master plan; almost the entire core road network needs rehabilitation as road conditions demonstrate premature deterioration due to lack of routine and preventative maintenance which is compounded by intense rainfall and unstable geotechnical conditions. Areas of high elevation are suffering from landslides and erosive degradation whereas low lying areas are prone to seasonal flooding. The rural road networks are of serious concern as substantial portions of the population are inaccessible for significant periods in the rainy season, creating severe challenges for organizations attempting to implement humanitarian programs within the rural areas.
Travel times in Timor-Leste vary significantly between the wet and dry seasons, in the rainy season use of local intelligence is highly advisable whe transports or visiting districts.
At present there are no significant security issues to contend with for road travel in Timor-Leste as there are very low levels of road banditry etc. Pending any large scale outbreak of civil unrest and alike.

Road Class and Surface Conditions
The Directorate of Roads, Bridges and Flood Control (DRBFC) readily admit that the road classifications do not always reflect the physical condition of the road itself, national roads can sometimes be little more than dirt tracks, in general they are better than district roads etc.
