This study advanced a common vision for transport among Africa’s development institutions and partners and for the policy and institutional reforms needed to improve maintenance, capacity expansion, management, and investment. Nathan Associates estimated the gap between regional transport demand and infrastructure capacity.

We estimated that in 2009 service inefficiencies along Africa’s transport corridors cost about US$72 billion and that demand would exceed capacity in all regions and in all transport modes by 2040. The study identified 185 projects ongoing and proposed that could remove corridor bottlenecks in the short, medium and long term.
