Optimization Study for Core Road Network Planning to Link Zambia
"This report presents an assessment of the importance of different road sections and corridors (“projects”) prioritized based on transportation efficiency, accessibility and socio-economic characteristics. The Zambian road network is undergoing significant improvements which will increase the total length and improve the condition of some of the existing sections. Among the major projects going on are those encompassed by the Link Zambia 8000, Lusaka-Copperbelt Corridor, and Pave Lusaka 400. We analyse existing and projected traffic patterns as well as various socio-economic and demographic datasets. The final priority project list and its attributes might not be very precise due data limitations, but they can be revised at any time should new and higher quality data be available."
