Transport

Ghana Transport

Rapid economic development, demographic growth and regional dynamics have put increasing pressure on Ghana’s transportation system over the past decade, and it has at times struggled to keep pace. Rather than allow the transportation sector to become a victim of the country’s success, the government has pushed forward infrastructure development projects, with the private sector encouraged to take a major role in finance, construction and management. The importance of private participation in transport infrastructure has become ever more apparent in recent years. Although Ghana’s public resources remain limited, pressure on its transportation system has increased due to economic and population growth, as well as a rise in visitor numbers and trade, including with the landlocked countries to the north.
