Presently Nigeria is the top country with the largest highway infrastructure in Africa. Still it is coping with the problem of road decay and ruination. It has over 60 thousand kilometers of paved roads. Paved road construction as well as railway construction in Nigeria has started with the colonization era. One of the first paved roads in the country was constructed back in 1904 by Lord Laggard and it was suitable for mule travelling. In 1906 the first motor road was built from Ibadan and Oyo. Since that time many more roads were added and in 2004 major road reconstruction attempt was taken.
