One nation, 29 states and millions of places to visit. Imagine the plight if you had to maneuver across the country without interstate tarmacs. Much to your relief, you can stop imagining such a chaotic scenario, because our country is well connected by a wide network of highways.
Pegged as the lifeline of an economy, the highways play a pivotal role in the growth of a country. Most of the transportation of goods and miscellaneous services takes place through roads. An efficient network of transportation reduces the logistics involved by a great deal as it straightaway influences the distribution cost. Highways are designed with an aim to facilitate interstate road transportation and have myriad of affects on our lives.
A region’s and its people’s development is highly dependent on a highway. An easy accessibility to a highway allows the business in a town to flourish. A well designed route connected through highways allows for easy two-way transportation of goods and services. A company can easily receive input materials and dispose furnished goods in a timely fashion. This translates into a reduced production cost leading to a better profit. Also, a reduced transportation time allows a business to improve its throughput.
Highways are the most efficient means of transportation in the high altitude areas. They connect even the remotest of the areas to the mainstream civilization. Highways have acted as a catalyst in making villages actively participate in the growth of this economy and enjoy the benefits of development. In order for India to be a developed nation, a robust and efficient network of highways is paramount.
