This road survey was carried out in the framework of the AfCAP Rural Transport Diagnostic Study on Ghana (GHA2050A). This rural transport study was undertaken in the Akatsi South District, Volta region, in Ghana’s coastal savannah ecological zone. The study sought to understand the existing transport systems for the rural communities along and within the catchment area of Abor-Avenorpeme-Hatorgodo road. Using the rapid rural appraisal methodology, the study conducted a limited number of in-depth qualitative interviews of different transport users, operators, regulators and development-related stakeholders. Through this method, reliable ‘order of magnitude’ estimates were derived, related to movements of people and goods, transport fares, tariffs and preferences of road users for travel distances greater than 5 km.
