Economical policies, political stability and military strength are considered to be the three foundations on which one can expect a country to be on solid ground to develop. However, to achieve all three in an inclusive manner you need transport infrastructure so that these can seep into the remotest part of the country. By Transport infrastructure we mean that of Air, Road and Water. However, considering the geographic terrain and economical considerations we can rule out water and air as a means to reach to the remotest of the places, though they are very important mediums for transport but they are not that critical then road transport and in this blog post we would talk about road transport of pedestrian/motor cars and not about the railways though railways is an extended version of road transport to connect far of places through via land.
People depend on roads almost on a daily basis, children use it to go to school, working professional use it to go to work and others some way or the other use it to essential business to the health centre. Roads underpin the businesses, agriculture and trade which provide the jobs that lift nations out of poverty.
The advantages of road and highways can be mentioned as follows:
1. Roads and highways infrastructure influences both the economic growth as well as social cohesion between societies that are connected by roads making both the societies more aware and understanding of each other.
2. Road transport is also helpful from its branched out systems which help in connecting many rural areas with the urban areas in a developing country.
3. Construction of roads and highways helps in spreading awareness from a more advanced area to a rural area.
4. Highways can be a cheap model for transporting local goods at a reasonable cost
With the above various advantages of roads and highways the planning, design and construction of infrastructure has also seen quite a change in recent times from a shift towards increasing mobility to providing more safety of road travelers. Further, the target is to develop techniques and materials that helps in reducing environmental impact and increasing sustainability while simultaneously reducing the time for the construction process and increasing the efficiency of the complete process.
