Abstract
The importance of good roads as an aid to government and an encouragement of prosperity was appreciated by the Romans in Britain. Their straight, hardsurfaced ways remain as their enduring monuments to this day. Rough roads, dusty in dry weather and muddy in wet, which hinder intercourse and the spread of new ideas, make administration more difficult and expensive as well as less efficient. The increase of prosperity in the community is retarded by bad roads, in that the cost of transport of exportable surplttses of agricultural and pastoral products is raised and movement of goods is made slower and more difficult, so that increased production is retarded.
