Q.2 (i):- State any three merits of roadways.
Roadways are the most important means of transportation in India. India has one of the largest networks of roadways in the world, aggregating to about 2.3 million km at present. Road transport has preceded railways and still have an edge over it in view of the ease with which it can be built and maintained. Other means of transport like pipelines have limited application and waterways are localised in rivers and water bodies while airways are costly and out of reach of common people.
