    SOURCE: 2001 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Railways:
      total: 3,557 km
      narrow gauge: 3,505 km 1.067-m gauge
      standard gauge: 52 km 1.435-m gauge
      note: years of neglect of both the rolling stock and the right-of-way have seriously reduced the capacity and utility of the system; a project to restore Nigeria's railways is now underway

      unpaved: 134,326 km
      note: many of the roads reported as paved may be graveled; because of poor maintenance and years of heavy freight traffic - in part the result of the failure of the railroad system - much of the road system is barely usable (1997)
