Ethiopian road transport development

Abstract: 

Ethiopia is one of the land locked country in Africa. This implies that the country's socio economic development is expected to rely on the road transport in conveying goods and services through out the country. Despite of all these facts the sub sector is trapped by so many complex structural and non structural factors. The government and private sector are not working together in the right ways. The country in general has no comprehensive transport policy and strategy. There is poor development of public transport and little attention is given to environmental protection. There is series trend of motorization in which the used vehicles are extremely dominating. The traffic safety problem is ringing in every citizen's mind
