The international Congress on Roads

    Article metrics


    THE first International Road Congress was held in Paris during the week which ended on Saturday last, October 17. On the whole the congress may be pronounced a success, chiefly on account of the large number of interested visitors present, and from the fact that on certain points there was a strong consensus of opinion that roads can now be constructed to stand modern automobile traffic at slight additional cost, and that the two nuisances dust in summer and mud in winter can be greatly minimised in their extent.
