Road transport demand and constraints: China 2010

This paper discusses the deficiencies of the current road system in China, where economic reform has brought rapid economic growth and in turn an increase in road traffic demand. The demand for road expansion is addressed in four aspects: population growth; economic growth; international trade; and the limited alternatives of other transport modes. The rationale of increasing road infrastructure is also discussed in line with a balance of the estimated demand and feasible funding and other constraints. The tasks of road expansion by 2010 will be focused on improving the capacity of the existing road networks and accessibility in rural areas. Opportunities for road related projects for Australian professionals are outlined. Technology transfer and soft loans for road projects are suggested.
