WHY DO RURAL REGIONS NEED GOOD ROADS?

The paper discusses characteristics of rural regions and of East Anglia in particular, with special reference to the present settlement pattern and the road network. The existing network is assessed and progress toward adaptation to modern needs reviewed. The inter-connection between central and local government expenditure on highways, and the problem of priorities of public expenditure, are mentioned. A realistic solution is put forward and reference made to the importance of a satisfactory standard of highway maintenance to all forms of transportation. (Author/TRRL)
