Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 295 km. For each of the country's 8,327 inhabitants, this corresponds to 35.43 meters. This puts Cook Islands in 11th place in the global ranking. However, it is also important to note the country's population density, which is very low at around 34 inhabitants per km². Like this, disproportionately long distances generally have to be covered to reach the more remote parts of the country. On the Cook Islands, left-hand traffic is the rule on the roads, i.e. you drive in the left lane and overtake on the right. Oncoming traffic comes to meet you on the right side. Here you can also find an overview of all countries with left-hand traffic.
