Importance of road transport in the economy of Madhya Pradesh

Road Transport In Madhya Pradesh

The first step for the economic development of any state is the development of traffic routes. The economy of any state or country can only be developed by developing the transport system. Transport was also developed in Madhya Pradesh with the same purpose.

Roads play an important role in the development of any country/region. The State Government has given full attention to the construction of roads and their importance in the state during the last 5 years. The State Road Transport Corporation was established in the year 1962 under the Traffic Corporation Act 1950 in the state. Its main objective was to provide efficient, accessible, and affordable transport facilities to the passengers. The means of transport in the state can be divided into three parts - road, rail and the air. Bus and train services cover most parts of Madhya Pradesh. According to the Economic Survey Report 2016-17, the state's long road network includes 46 national highways.

Major inter-state bus terminals are located at Bhopal, Indore, Gwalior, and Jabalpur.

More than 2,000 buses runs daily between these four cities of Madhya Pradesh.

The intra-city transit system consists mostly of buses, private autos, and taxis.

The state does not have a coastline. Most maritime trade is through Kandla and the neighboring state of Jawaharlal Nehru Port (Nhava Sheva), which is also well connected by roads and rail networks.
