Abstract:The study deals with the development and application of a model for field evaluation of rural road construction priorities in Liberia. In developing areas the final selection of a farm-to-market route often has a critical bearing on regional development; therefore, there seems to be a need for practical guidelines for field evaluation of farm-to-market route construction priorities. The model suggested consists of 9 weighted rating items (i.a. population served by proposed road; availability of other means of transportation; cost of construction per mile) representing both direct and indirect benefits. Parts of the article: The model - Weights and ratings - Study area (Liberia) - Application of the model to the study area - Final comment. Tables; figures; notes.
