Roads improve communications within a region: goods and, more importantly, armies
can move at a better speed along maintained roads.
Some effort is put into maintaining the main roads, improving the carriageway and
providing working drainage for rainwater. If nothing else, the building of roads is a
useful way of getting some value from the feckless, workshy, and undeserving poor.
Honest men who pay their taxes expect some return for their support of the naturally
indolent and the unfortunates who have been thrown out of work.
Historically, there was also a military imperative to improve roads, even if the change
was from a rutted cart track to a smooth cart track. Troops and artillery require good
roads for strategic redeployments and rapid responses to enemy or rebellious activity. It
is far easier to haul artillery pieces along any kind of road rather than across country.
With the Enlightenment’s conscious harking back to the Classical era, there was also a
desire to emulate the achievements of Rome, even in something as small as roadways.
