HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION:

Broadly, there are two classes of roads:

(a)        Urban, and

(b)       Rural (Non-urban).

Urban roads are those which are located within towns and cities, and are under the jurisdiction of municipalities and other local bodies.

Rural roads are those located in non-urban areas and connect cities, towns and villages across the country.

Urban roads are classified into the following classes:

Expressways

Sub-arterial Streets
