India's transport sector is large and diverse; it caters to the needs of 1.1 billion people. Good physical connectivity in the urban and rural areas is essential for economic growth. Since the early 1990s, India's growing economy has witnessed a rise in demand for transport infrastructure and services. India has an extensive network of transport through ports, highway networks, railways and airports. While this drives commerce in the future, it is also important for industry to take steps to safeguard and protect transportation networks and systems.
