Overview of road works
Road projects can be divided into several different types, including those that result in the construction of new roads or in improvements made to existing roads (new construction/reconstruction projects) and those that are designed to maintain existing roads (maintenance projects).
The Public Works Division is charged with constructing and upgrading new arterial roads and community roads, constructing new bridges and reconstructing existing bridges, developing traffic safety facilities, repairing roads, and various other tasks. With the diversification in the scope of road functions last year, the contents of projects undertaken by this division have been undergoing considerable change.
The Roads and Streets Division is busy with various projects of its own, including the development of urban planning of roads (such as arterial roads and footways) and projects designed to elevate railway tracks at points of intersection with roads, and the development of an underground pedestrian network.
