Road traffic

The network of roads and highways has a total length of 234 km. For each of the country's 2,000 inhabitants, this corresponds to 117.00 meters. This puts Niue in 2nd place in the global ranking. However, it is also important to note that the country's population density is very low at around 8 inhabitants per km². In this case, disproportionately long distances generally have to be covered to reach the more remote parts of the country. In Niue, 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.
