Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 5,622 km. For each of the country's 271,960 inhabitants, this corresponds to 20.67 meters. This puts New Caledonia in 23rd place in the global ranking. However, it is also important to note the country's population density, which is very low at around 15 inhabitants per km². Like this, disproportionately long distances generally have to be covered to reach the more remote parts of the country. In New Caledonia, traffic drives on the right-hand side of the road, i.e. people drive in the right-hand lane and overtake on the left. Oncoming traffic comes toward you on the left side. Here you can also find an overview of all countries with left-hand traffic.
