The World's highways
Good roads are much more than efficient traffic pavements. They link the nations and their different ways of life, stimulate trade and travel, and so help to advance the cause of international understanding. The modern highway engineer, as he conquers Nature's barriers and brings peoples closer together, is making a really important and lasting contribution towards World peace and prosperity.
Highway construction on a fast growing scale is in progress in every continent today. Road teams are taming the wilderness, stretching the frontiers of civilization, and bringing remote and hitherto untapped areas of the Earth's natural riches under development. As motor transport replaces pack and draught animals in backward territories, the primitive trackways and dirt roads of tradition are being changed into all-weather surfaced highways.
