“Roadways still have an edge over railways in India.” Support the statement with arguments.
Roadways still have an edge over railways in India. It is because it is still the most common means of transport in the country. The construction costs of roadways are much lower than
the construction costs of railways. While it is difficult to lay down railway lines in hilly tracts or mountainous regions, roads can be easily built in dissecting tracts of land. Roads today connect even the smallest village to a large town. Railways have yet not been able to connect villages to cities. Roadways are economical in transporting few people and a small quantity of goods over short distances. Roads provide a link between various railway stations.
