This is the first of a four short introductions to managing roads, originally written in 2006 and subsequently amended and updated. It was originally written for use in newspapers and other broadly available media, for readers who have little or no knowledge of the issues involved with constructing and managing roads. Users are therefore encouraged to distribute these articles as widely as possible, provided that their source is acknowledged.
The other parts of this series (which will be posted on the gTKP website shortly), are:
Part 2: Paying for Roads.
Part 3: Efficiency & Effectiveness.
Part 4: Making Things Better.
