This paper is divided into seven sections, the first of which sets out the importance of agriculture to the British economy. Sections 2-4 deal with the problems created by the building of new roads from the farming point of view, including severance, road fencing and accommodation works, and call for more consultation with farmers throughout the road planning procedure. Sections 5 to 7 show the importance of a good rural road network to the agricultural industry and discuss the use of heavy commercial vehicles on rural roads. /Author/TRRL/
