They are important in ground transport because of their adaptability to differing needs. The present state of the French road network has to be improved. An international comparison of road networks points out the inferior state of roads in France. A policy for improving the road network is necessary on all state and local levels.

The Department of Roads is planning fast improvement of roads, to solve urban congestion and to improve public transport service. A coherent policy of maintenance, equipment and usage of roads has the aim of improving the services for the user.
