The African transport system is under-developed and backward. Colonial era road development had lifted the national road networks to be generally outward looking. Post independence restructuring of national networks paid little attention to inter-State links. In an effort therefore to promote inter-State road communication developments the Economic Commission for Africa launched a programme of development of a number of major trunk highways and their respective feeder links, which together would form a coherent continental network, known as the Trans-African Highways (TAHs).
