Sierra Leone’s rail system has been almost entirely closed down in favor of an expanded network of 11,330 km (7,040 mi) of roads. Inland waterways, most of them navigable for three months of the year, total 800 km (500 mi). Freetown, Pepel, and Bonthe are the chief ports. The country has a well-developed internal air transport network; international service is provided by several foreign lines. Lungi, near Freetown, is the site of an international airport. The government-operated radio broadcasting system, based in Freetown, broadcasts in English, Krio, Mende, Limba, and Temne. A government-owned television station was established in Freetown in 1963. The country’s only daily newspaper, the Daily Mail of Freetown, has a circulation of 20,000.
