Summary: 

Transporters are reluctant to deploy trucks due to the road conditions. They are not only concerned about the safety of their drivers trapped in isolated locations but that the trucks could be stuck for weeks or months which could impact their businesses. "On some routes we become road maintenance workers to avoid being stuck or getting overturned. My assistant and I have to dig after every few kilometres to ensure that the trucks can move, these are impossible conditions," said a driver for a commercial transporter contracted to WFP.
