ANCIENT ROAD TRANSPORT-POST INDEPENDENCE-1

The basic modes of transportation are land, air, and water. In the modern era, a part of our research is how to make these modes smoother, better and faster for travel and transportation. The roads being the main mode of land transport. In this article, we will take a look on various types of road transport and its uses.


BICYCLES:
Bicycles, or cycles have ownership rates ranging from around 30% to 70% at the state level. Along with walking, cycling accounts for 50 to 75% of the commuter trips for those in the 
informal sector in urban areas.The government is also taking up initiatives to encourage people to travel by cycles rather than in seperate cars in order the decrease the population.



CYCLE-RICKSHAWS:

Cycle rickshaws were introduced in India in the 1940s. They are bigger than a tricycle where two people sit on an elevated seat at the back and a person pedals from the front. In the late 2000s, they were banned in several cities for causing traffic congestion. Cycle rickshaws have been a feature of Delhi streets since Indian independence in 1947, providing the cheapest way around the capital. In addition, environmentalists have supported the  cycle rickshaws as a non-polluting and inexpensive mode of transport.
The driver pedals in front of the passenger seat, though some vehicles have the driver in the rear. Cycle rickshaws are widely used all over Asia, where they have largely replaced less-efficient hand-pulled rickshaw that required the driver to walk or run while pulling the vehicle.
Rickshaws are environmentally friendly.
Cycle rickshaws are often hailed as environmentally-friendly, inexpensive modes of transport. Many cities in developing countries are highly polluted. The main reasons are the air and noise pollution caused by transport vehicles, especially petrol-powered two and three wheelers. For example, in India there are close to 18 million petrol- powered two wheelers and about 1.5 million petrol and diesel powered three wheelers. These vehicles are increasing in number at the rate of about 15% per year.

BULLOCK-CART:
During the early civilization man used the animal power in his service. Like some other animals his bullocks carried his loads.  In order to draw better service from the bullocks, man invented the bullock-cart.
 the bullock-cart can move both on the roads and on the out of the way places. The bullock-carts can go to such places to which other sorts of wheeled traffic cannot move. Hence, the transport of goods depend very much on the bullock-carts. The making income-group can possess bullock-carts for themselves.
But there are some disadvantages also.The bullock-cart is quite slow in its speed. It has to depend upon the patient and healthy bullocks. If the bullocks get tired or sick, the cart cannot work. If the bullocks get unruly on the way, the cart and the cart-man surely run into danger.
