This book considers the problem of providing maximum access to transport services, and to roads for the rural population of the world's developing countries when limited funds are available. Access is a key factor in both social and economic development. It promotes social intercourse and opens up markets for both the rural and urban populations. Access connotes the ability to travel and to transport goods. The components of access include both the infrastructure and the transport modes or aids that use the infrastructure.
