Covers all country with total length of 165,000 km, out of which approximately 80% are the roads with hard (asphalt) surface.
With exception of the international class highways the road surface condition is often below acceptable standard which reduces speed of the traffic and subsequently increases cargo transit time.
Worth noting that unpaved roads, connecting remote village areas are mainly not paved and present potential challenge for access in winter time.
