This road survey was carried out in the framework of the AfCAP Rural Transport Diagnostic Study on Ghana (GHA2050A). This study seeks to understand the existing transport systems for rural communities along and within the catchment area of the Gyasikrom–Ayomso road, a low-volume road in Ghana’s forested Brong Ahafo region. The rapid rural appraisal methodology was used which produced valuable ‘order of magnitude’ estimates in a relatively short period, related to movements of people and goods in the surveyed rural communities for distances greater than 5 km. Generally, transport users were dissatisfied with overloading, poor service predictability, long waiting times and high passenger fares.
