#BestroadsinAfrica Most citizens in the Africa continent over the years have complained bitterly about issues of not having enough infrastructure. This menace is projected to be part of the reasons why the countries lack progress. One of the essential factors for economic growth is domestic and international transportation, thus, road infrastructure needs to be maintained and updated regularly. Whiles corruption has taken over some countries in the continent, others have set their priorities right as they heavily invest in infrastructural projects that will enable their countries to grow. According to the Global Competitiveness Report index, some countries have pointed out to be very keen as far as the progress of their infrastructure is concern. The index tracks the performance of about 140 countries on 12 pillars of competitiveness, including the quality of road infrastructure development, maintenance and urban-rural balance. The road quality indicator score is based on only one question. The respondents are asked to rate the roads in their country of operation on a scale from 1 (underdeveloped) to 7 (extensive and efficient by international standards). The individual responses are aggregated to produce a country score. In the recent ranking by the Global Competitive Report Index, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, and Switzerland, emerged with the best road in the world with scores of 6.2 each, while Mauritania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Haiti, emerged with the worst roads with score of 2.1. Following is a list of the top 10 African countries considered to have the best roads. Before we bring forth the list, permit me welcome you to Positive Africa if you are new, here on this channel, our main goal is to showcase the positive face of Africa out to the world by means of information and education.

Starting this list from the 10th African country with the best road network infrastructure all the way to the 1st, we have Senegal with a score of 4.0 Officially the Republic of Senegal, Senegal is a country in West Africa. Senegal covers a land area of almost 197,000 kilometer square and has an estimated population of about 16.7 million people. The system of roads in Senegal is extensive by West African standards. About 90% of movements of people and goods in Senegal are made via roads. The roads network is estimated at about 14,500 km, of which 4,500 km are paved. In fact, it is now possible from Dakar to reach any of the other ten Senegalese main regional cities by paved road. The Government of Senegal has launched an ambitious programme aimed at rehabilitating certain roads and building new ones. However, as in many other African countries, road maintenance is a recurrent problem. Coming up to the 9th position, we have Cape Verde with a score of 4.1. The road network of Cape Verde is managed by the national government and by the municipalities. The total length of the road network is 1,650 km, of which 1,113 km are national roads and 537 km municipal roads. Of the national roads, 36% is asphalted. There are no railways in Cape Verde. Most people fly to move from one city to another but the roads available are of good quality which is why they were ranked 9th on the charts of top 10 African countries with the best quality roads.
