The future is not a smooth road.
The real question is whether or not it will become a smooth asphalt road.
It’s a question that is being debated as a result of the announcement of a new $3.5bn project by the government to build a major road project.
It is the biggest road project in the country.
It will be the world’s biggest highway, and will also become the nation’s main transportation artery, with an estimated $1.6 trillion worth of infrastructure.
Roads have been a major focus of the construction boom in the US, China and South Africa.
The latest estimates show the US alone is spending $3bn a year on infrastructure projects and roads.
In Canada, road building has been an important part of the country’s economic growth and the province is a leading exporter of road infrastructure.
A road-related infrastructure boom has seen the price of construction materials and infrastructure materials skyrocket in recent years, particularly in the mining sector, and this has driven a lot of development of new infrastructure in Canada.
Construction is the largest industry in Canada, with construction companies accounting for almost 50 per cent of all new construction in the United States and almost 90 per cent in China.
In the US the industry has experienced a “rebound” and the industry is growing at an annual rate of about 5 per cent.
But this has led to an overall drop in the value of construction, with the value per square foot of the industry falling by a third over the last three years.
In South Africa the construction industry is a major sector, accounting for roughly 70 per cent, or more than $1 trillion, of total construction activity.
But the industry still accounts for only 25 per cent or less of total new construction activity, according to the US Bureau of Economic Analysis.
“This boom has been driven by a lot more infrastructure,” said Chris Wills, chief executive of Infrastructure Canada, a national government agency that provides technical assistance to private companies and governments.
“A lot of that infrastructure is coming from roads, which have a lot higher cost to build than other types of infrastructure.”
Roads are not just a source of cheap labor and cheap raw materials, but they are also a source that helps fuel economic growth.
In Canada, the cost of road construction has grown by 40 per cent over the past five years, from $2.4 billion in 2005 to $4.7 billion in 2017.
The boom has also led to a dramatic increase in the number of road closures in Canada and other parts of the world.
In 2017, for instance, there were 1.6 million road closures, more than double the number in 2005.
“Roads become a huge part of economic activity because they’re the primary way to get goods to markets and to connect with consumers,” said Mr Wills.
“It’s not just for transportation but also for jobs.”
In Canada’s case, the economic benefits of road building have not been matched by the environmental costs of road destruction.
A recent study by the University of Toronto’s Centre for the Study of the Environment (CSE) found that the environmental impact of roadbuilding and road construction in Canada has been about $50 billion per year.
“There is a huge gap between the environmental impacts and the economic impacts,” said Ms Kowalchuk.
“There are so many factors that contribute to this.”
Ms Kowlchuk has already set up an online database that tracks the economic, environmental and social impacts of road projects in Canada over the years.
She hopes the database will be useful in creating a better understanding of the economic impact of roads.
“We want to make it easier for people to have a better idea of what the impact is of a road project,” she said.
“If you look at the impact of the highway in Canada we’re talking about about $3 billion a year.”
