Road transport policy may be seen as a framework to make decisions about road infrastructure so that economic growth may be supported. This paper summarises the findings of a survey which aimed to examine the degree to which senior road transport executives of middle- and low-income countries are familiar with their national road transport policy, together with their perceptions about whether the road policy addressed the development needs of such countries. The main findings of the survey were that the exposure of road transport sector professionals to their countries’ national road transport policy was sometimes insufficient; their level of awareness about the developmental needs addressed by road policy was not comprehensive, and this applied also to their knowledge of systems for monitoring and evaluation of policy implementation.
