Ogunleye Olusesan Sola


Transport is very key and important in the socio- economic transformation of any region or country. It is the life wire upon which other socio-economic activities of any nation depend. Be that as it may, government at all levels are always anxious to provide efficient transport services to meet the ever increasing desire of man to move freely while pursing his day to day activities. In the developed world, attention is shifting to the evaluation of transportation infrastructures as distinct from mere provision of such facilities. Hence, this study examines the various efforts of government of some developed countries of the world in their bid to make sure that transportation networks provision not only exist in some localities, but perform the roles they are meant to perform. Data for this study was collected from the secondary source through a review of existing literatures on how countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada Germany etc. have been able to apply performance measures to their transportation system; thereby giving room for a near perfect and efficient transportation system. Content analysis was used to analyze data. Findings revealed that no serious agencies of government in Nigeria had been put in place at both the federal and state levels to co-ordinate and promote performance measures of transportation networks. The study recommended the establishment of agencies that can get feedback from the populace, the performance level of transportation networks and infrastructures in Nigeria for improved transportation system in the country.
