Some benefits of transport by road

Road transport connects places very well.

Unlike using air transport, road transport allows children to travel to school using a door to door service.

Another advantage is that roads can be built to remote locations as well as to busy urban areas something that would be very costly for a railway to do.

Roads can also be built on steep slopes as well as over rivers and valleys.
It is expensive to built railway lines in steep slopes so roadways have an advantage when it comes to building.

Are there any other advantages to road transport, especially for children?

Children who come to school by bus or car use road transport.

Most of our road journeys to school are by bicycle, car or bus.
