National Highway (NH) traversing the length and breadth of the country, linking provincial capitals and serving strategic and administrative needs of the country.
State Highway would be the other main road of the province.
District Roads are those which take off from the main roads leading to the interior of the districts depending upon the importance, some of them would be classified as Major District Roads (MDRs) and the others as other District Roads (ODRs).
