2.2 Accessibility and Mobility in Rural Areas

Rural areas provide goods, industries, and workforce for all communities, and roads are the most important way to exchange goods and services. Technical Committee 2.2 "Accessibility and Mobility in Rural Areas" focuses on accessibility in rural areas and on mobility needs in coordination with Technical Committee 2.1. Road networks in rural areas are very extensive compared to the low density of population, and as a result it is difficult to finance the construction and the maintenance of those networks and the safety conditions are generally poor. Therefore, this Technical Committee also focuses on improving road safety and technical solutions for paved and unpaved roads in rural areas. (extract from the Strategic Plan)
