As we enter the twenty-first century, transport is a critical link between economic and social development. Effective transport systems allow people to get to their jobs, take care of their health, pursue an education, and obtain the necessary food and goods to support their daily existence. Likewise, poorly planned transport systems can perpetuate existing inequities, increase air and noise pollution, and add to the complexity of solving urban and rural planning dilemmas. There can be little doubt that transport in the twenty-first century will be as much about moving people and goods and facilitating equitable access to services, as the previous century has been focused on moving vehicles.

As conclusion making the necessary investments in the road network in the municipalities until 2020 could generate direct, indirect and induced jobs for the region. A better integrated and efficient transport system which further facilitates the free movement of people and goods within the EU and with its neighbours, and which integrates innovative technologies and traffic management systems, does not only improve the economic conditions for business but provides further impetus for the generation of new jobs.
