Transport in East Timor
As a direct consequence of the country's poverty, transportation infrastructure and communications network, are generally poor. The general condition of roads is poor, and telephone and Internet usage and capabilities are still limited, especially in the countryside. The country has six airports, one of which has commercial and international flights. There are no railroads.
So far there are no railways in East Timor. However, a master plan for a 500 km long electrified single track railway has been proposed in 2012, with a central line from Bobonaro to Los Palos, a western corridor from Dili to Betano and an eastern corridor from Baucau to Uatolari.
