- Road transport is the back born of strong economies and dynamic societies. It is vital to National growth and social development. Road transportation is the mode that has expanded the most over the last 50 years, both for passengers and freight markets.
- This represents a dramatic change in the built environment with the massive addition of road infrastructures supporting urban mobility and connecting cities.
- The spatial cover of road transportation is extensive, but its scope remains local and regional. Growth in road freight transport has been fuelled mainly by trade liberalization. The growth of the loading capacity of the vehicle has improved, and vehicles have been adapted to freight market segments such as perishables, fuel, construction materials, and containers.
