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

These are divided highways for motorized traffic with full or partial control of access.

Arterial Street

These are streets meant for through traffic on a continuous route.

Sub-arterial Streets

Collector Streets

These are the main highways running throughout the length and breadth of the country, connecting state capitals, ports, large industrial and tourist centres, foreign highways including roads of strategic importance for defence.
