The transit times indicated here above are for a Toyota Landcruiser travelling under normal road and weather conditions. Roadblocks are numerous but delays are kept to a bare minimum for UN and NGO passenger vehicles.
Trailer/lorries cruise at an average speed of 40 to 50 km but controls at checkpoints, roadblocks and road cutters’ barriers may entail long delays. For a lorry, the journey from Abidjan Port to Korhogo may require two 12 hour days of  driving.

Road Security

Unsafe road conditions, unskilled drivers, and poorly maintained and overloaded vehicles create very poor driving conditions. Speed limits, lane markings, and signals are not respected, and vehicle drivers do not yield for pedestrians or bicyclists.
