Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

THE recent opening of Europe's L largest steelworks at Margarn Underlines the urgent need to modernize the road system which serves it. No attempt has yet been made to improve the highly unsatisfactory public roads serving this area—already overladen with heavy industrial traffic. In the British Road Federation's latest publication, "South Wales Roads." attention is focused upon the poor state of the highways in this region and of those which link South Wales with the Midlands. Costly schemes are to be carried out for industrial development in South Wales, but the flow of traffic to and from the area is likely to fall below expectations unless communications are improved.

Geographically, it is pointed out, South Wales ports are natural outlets for the industrial products of the Mid-lands, but because high transport costs are involved in taking advantage of them, manufacturers prefer to ship through ports farther away, but more easily accessible.
