General

Réunion possesses a network of highways, which cover a total distance of 2,784 km. Of that length, 2,187 km of the road system is paved. There are no roads going into the cirque of Mafate, thus transportation there has to take place by foot or helicopter.

There are no railways in Réunion, with the exception of a short tourist line, which was originally part of a larger rail network. A new 70 km tram-train is planned to open in 2014.

There are two major ports in Réunion; Le Port and Pointe des Galets. Réunion possesses a merchant marine of one ship with a weight exceeding 1,000 GRT, which is a chemical tanker.

There are two airports on the island, of which both have paved runways. The main airport is the international Roland Garros Airport located close to Saint Denis and the second one is the Aéroport de Pierrefond, located near Saint-Pierre in the south of the island.
