Résumé
Infrastructure plays a critical role in development. Good infrastructure such as roads enables people to access public services, such as healthcare and education, to access employment opportunities, and enable the movement of goods within the economy. However, it is worth noting that the benefits of road infrastructure have not been equally distributed throughout the space economy. While some regions have benefited from road infrastructure developments, others have often been marginalised, which tends to exacerbate social exclusion, poverty and inequality. The general focus of the study will be at the macroeconomic level. This study will explore the importance of road infrastructure for the whole economy rather than its impact on specific sectors of the economy. An adapted case study about Mohlake rural village is used to give a clear practical example describing the impact of road infrastructure that are benefiting and disadvantaging the marginalised communities to achieve social and economic objectives. The overall goal of this study is to identify the importance of roads and road infrastructure development as the determinants of economic development in South Africa.
