Transport infrastructure within Chad is generally poor, especially in the north and east of the country. There are no railways and river transport is limited to the south-west corner.

Roads are mostly unsurfaced and are likely to be impassable during the wet season, especially in the southern half of the country. In the north, roads are merely tracks across the desert and land mines continue to present a danger. Draft animals (horses, donkeys and camels) remain important in much of the country.

Fuel supplies can be erratic, even in the south-west of the country, and are expensive. Elsewhere they are practically non-existent.

Railways

Chad has no railways, but Libya is contemplating extending its naiscent railway network to sub-Saharan Africa, perhaps via Chad on its way to other countries. This link would be 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 12 in). [1]
