Timor-Leste: A dream of a better road

    Newer Older

    Joao Do Santos: I travelled to the rural areas of Aileu, Ainaro, Manufahi and Covalima District to see the road condition firsthand. It was a long, long trip, mostly due to the road condition rather than the distance itself – it took between 3 to 4 hours to travel 70 kilometers. The road conditions were so bad, in certain places drivers perform maneuvers impossible for people unfamiliar with the region.
