This study handles land transportation of vehicles in Nablus Governorate which has been regarded as part of the West Bank of the Jordan River according to the classification of the Palestinian National Authority since 1993. It also deals with land transportation as part of geography within the whole framework of Economic Geography. The study aims to pinpoint the general features of the roads system in Nablus Governorate with respect to their expansion, direction and classification.
