Top Ten Longest Road Networks


Road networks are the lifelines of nations and have played a pivotal role since times immemorial in the transportation of goods and services. While in some countries the road networks are colossal, in others they may be small. The map above depicts the top ten countries with the largest road networks. Though it was obvious that big nations such as the US, Russia and Canada would make it to the list, it is surprising that some small countries like Japan and France have also come to occupy a place within the list of the top ten nations due to the sheer size of their road networks.

It is no surprise that the United States, which is the third largest country in the world, is at the top of the list in terms of having the longest road network. The road network in the country spans across 6,586,610 kilometers. At the second spot is India, which has a good network of roads spread over 4,699,024 kilometers. The road networks in China and Brazil, the two other enormous countries in the world, were 4,106,387 kilometers and 1,580,964 kilometers. Interestingly, Russia, the largest country in the world, comes at the fifth spot with a road network of 1,283,387 kilometers.

Surprisingly, Japan, which is a small nation, is ahead of Canada, the second largest nation in the world, in terms of the length of the road network. While Canada, which occupied the seventh spot, had a road network of 1,042,300 kilometers, Japan, occupied the sixth spot with a road network spanning 1,218,772 kilometers. France too made it to the top ten list.
