The DRC is a country with an extensive rivers network which is of paramount importance for transportation. Therefore, roads, since colonial times, and continuing into the late 1970's have been subordinated as a transport means to the river-railroad system and no comprehensive network of highways exists between the main urban centers. Nowadays, the road network of the pre-war period is no more existent.
