Turkana County has a total road network of approximately    9,000 km    out of which    504.5 km is bitumen   and the rest is made up of dirt or gravel roads that are constantly maintained by the County Government to minimize the effect of heavy rains and seasonal rivers.

The tarmacking of the    500km A1    Road between Kitale town and the    Kenya-South Sudan border    (Nadapal) has connected urban centers along the transport corridor to the road network including    Lodwar, Lokichoggio, Lokichar, Kakuma, Lorugung, Lokitang, Lowareng, Kalokol,    and    Lokori.

Air Transport 

Air transport in the County continues to grow with daily scheduled flights operating between Nairobi and the airports in Lokichoggio and Lodwar.  
The County has an additional    22 airstrips   making remote parts of the County, including Kakuma, accessible by air with flights operated by both private businesses and humanitarian organizations.


Turkana County is also set to benefit from the Lamu Port and Lamu-Southern Sudan-Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) Corridor Program-   Eastern Africa’s largest and most ambitious infrastructure mega project.

Included in the LAPSSET Corridor Program are airport upgrades, inter-regional highways, oil pipelines, and standard gauge railway that will position the county as an instrumental transport and logistics hub connecting Kenya, Ethiopia and South Sudan.
