Use of Labour-based and Appropriate Technology:

The construction and maintenance of rural roads can generate a good level of employment. Hence, the technology used should be labour-oriented. The use of agricultural tractor based technology, with implements such as disc harrows, tillers, rooters and rotavators should be favoured. The compaction of earthwork, with rollers and water sprinklers towed by an agricultural tractor should be adopted.
