Roads and Bridges

Roads and Bridges

Roads have been existing in India for the last 5000 years. In early stages of Indian history, Ashoka and Chandragupta made efforts to construct roads. But the real progress was made during the Mughal period to enhance their empire networking. Roads make a crucial contribution to economic development and growth and bring important social benefits. They are of vital importance in order to make a nation grow and develop. In addition, providing access to employment, social, health and education services makes a road network crucial in fighting against poverty. As per the National Highways Authority of India, about 65% of freight and 80% passenger traffic is carried by the roads. As India continues its forward march as a global economic power, her urban transport network is fast becoming the most important infrastructure to support its mega growth.
