The country's road network extends over 69942 kilometres, of which more than 7500 are paved. The two main arteries are the 3400 Km long Pan-American highway , that links Peru 's northern and southern borders, and the central highway running from Lima through La Oroya (a mining centre) and the towns along the Mantaro valley to the Central Highlands and, ultimately, the eastern rainforests.
Numerous roads (including the long-distance Carretera Marginal) now penetrate into the rainforest.
The railway system covers 4300 Km.
Peru has 29 ports and harbours as well as 58 airports and airfields.
