The invention of Roman roads in Ancient Rome was created at about 300 A.D. Roman Roads had a positive and beneficial impact on Romans, and also influenced how other civilizations lived their lives. The Romans set the example for many other civilizations when it came to the use of the road. The creation of Roman roads, built to protect and control the empire, impacted Roman civilization by improving trade and inadvertently spreading Christianity throughout Europe. If these roads hadn’t been created, Rome wouldn’t be as successful as they are today.
Greek and Roman culture, although similar, are very different and interesting. Since the Romans adopted culture from the Greeks, many traditions are the same. When the Romans conquered the Hellenistic cities, they became fascinated with the idea of a Greek style of doing things. All things Greek
One of the most influential things the Romans did for Britain was build roads. When the Romans established in Britain they built lots of high-quality straight roads. The main roads that the Romans built were from London to York (via Lincoln), London to Wroxeter (a village in Shropshire), London to Dover and Exeter to York via Bath, Cirencester and Lincoln. The new roads meant that it was much easier and simpler for the emperors to control their empire. This was because they could send messages and orders quickly. The roads helped Romans to trade with each other. They also provided people with a much easier option than to walk. The roads were mainly built by Roman soldiers as the authorities could guarantee that the Roman soldiers would do the best they could for the sake of Rome. The Roman roads were used a lot but many had to walk as chariots and horses were expensive.

The fourth factor was the amazing engineers, inventors, and architects in the Empire. By 200 AD the Romans had built 53,000 miles of roads throughout the Empire. The very first was built in 312 BC. They also invented sewers, central heating systems, and the first types of concrete. (Mahoney, 2001)
They Roman’s had made fine roads, constructed well made bridges, had check points and they were fairly well constructed. Some of the bridges are still standing to this day; high, mighty, and sturdy bridges.
Roman Roads and Bridges Introduction The Roman road system, an intricate network of major as well as minor roads, spanned nearly 50,000 miles, allowed for quick, easy travel and military advantages, and served as a link between many different centers of population in the Roman Empire. At first, the Romans developed roads for military use only, utilizing them to gather troops quickly and transport resources to certain places during wars. Soldiers were even charged with the task of constructing roads. Eventually, civilians replaced them in this duty and even began using the roads as a means of travel from one place to another. Sometimes roads needed to traverse rivers and other types of gaps in the land. It was at these obstacles that Romans

Roman Engineering The ancient Romans were skilled engineers and have left lasting contributions in this field. The Romans built a great network of roads connecting cities throughout their empire. They also built aqueducts and bridges using arches for support. The Roman arch design was by far the most important innovation of their time. The arch, however, would have been useless without the discovery of concrete. The Romans had many other such discoveries that would make their engineering skills known throughout the world.
At its face value, the network of Roman roads is truly an engineering marvel. However, in addition to the engineering feats accomplished, the true genius of this network lies in the strategic outcomes achieved and the economic prosperity generated. Across this vast network of roads, Rome conquered the known world and expanded their vast empire. Using these roads, the Roman armies quickly and efficiently responded to any crisis or outbreak across the length and breadth of its expanding
