The Malawi Roads Authority (RA) is a quasi-government body which was established by an Act of Parliament in year 2006 with a mandate to ensure that public roads are constructed, maintained and rehabilitated at all times.
All Public roads, which form the national road network are under the Ministry of Works and Public Infrastructure. The Minister has however delegated the duty of looking after the various classes of roads to various Road Agencies like the RA, District and Local Councils and others. RA looks after the Main, Secondary and Tertiary roads throughout the country.
To better manage the road network, and respond to emergencies in good time, RA has demarcated the network along the Administrative Regions of the country and established an office to manage the network for the Region. RA has three Regional offices – in the North, South and Centre. Regional office North looks after all the network in the North of Malawi. Similarly, the Central and Southern Regional offices look after the network in their respective Regions while the Head office which is located centrally in Lilongwe deals with policy and strategy.
This website has been established to publicize the activities of RA. It is a medium through which the general public, stakeholders, development partners, government etc.) are informed and updated on what is happening on the Malawi Road Network.
