REPORT OF COMMITTEE FOR POST-WAR PLANNING

EXTENSIVE HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION IS NEEDED AT THE END OF THE WAR DUE TO THE RAPID EXPANSION OF AUTOMOTIVE TRANSPORT BEFORE THE WAR AND THE CURTAILMENT OF NORMAL HIGHWAY MAINTENANCE DURING THE WAR. PLANNING SHOULD PROVIDE FOR THE ELIMINATION OF CONGESTION CAUSED BY THE CONCENTRATION OF MOTOR VEHICLE TRAVEL IN URBAN AREAS. FUNDS FOR NEEDED CONSTRUCTION MUST BE PROVIDED; HOWEVER, IT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT THAT FUNDS BE DISTRIBUTED APPROPRIATELY. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT REVISION OF HIGHWAY SYSTEMS, STATE AND LOCAL, URBAN AND RURAL, AND METHODS OF FUND DISTRIBUTION BE STUDIED IN RELATION TO TRAFFIC USE.
