Transport systems facilitate people’s access to economic opportunities, social services, markets, places of recreation and other services and have a key role in the economy. There are also several negative effects of transport systems on quality of life. Understanding and maximizing the potential in the nexus of transport, socio-economic development and human well being has become important to planners and policy makers in developed countries. There is need to factor in such relationship in the planning of transportation systems in the countries of sub-Saharan Africa.
It is expected that this paper will provide new insights into contextual issues of socio-economic development, environmental change, transport systems and quality of life in Africa.
