TYPES OF ROADS


Country Roads | Quality of a Road



There are many different types of roads, from multilane freeways and expressways to two-way country roads. One important quality of a road is known as control of access. This term describes how vehicles are allowed to enter and exit a road. By controlling access to a road, the road can support more traffic at higher speeds. Roads can be classified into three broad categories: highways, urban or city streets, and rural roads. Each type of road controls access to different degrees. Each type also differs in location, the amount of traffic it can safely support, and the speed at which traffic can safely travel. (TYPES OF ROADS, Country Roads, Quality of a Road)
