INTRODUCTION

National Transport Research Centre (NTRC) was established in June 1974 in the Planning and Development Division, as one of its Technical Sections, to provide much needed research and development (R&D) support for planning and appraisal of transport sector projects/plans in a coordinated and cost effective manner. NTRC was transferred as such to the Communications Division in November 1992. It is effectively functioning as an R&D Wing of the Ministry of Communications.

MISSION STATEMENT

To achieve self-sufficiency in the fields of Transport Planning, Road Engineering and Road Safety through indigenous R&D work.
