the Romans... they built most roads in the uk...
Because the romans needed a quicker way to got around
Corduroy roads, like the fabric.
They were made with cobble and stone. They also could be what is known as Corduroy roads as well. Corduroy roads were made of logs covered in sand, and used in low lying or swampy areas. See the links below for more information.
Military Engineers made Corduroy Roads from felled trees. Most roads were dirt. Some had gravel or stone bases under the packed earth. Corduroy Roads were a quick and easy way to provide a hard surface for foot and horse traffic.
Cordury roads were important because it was a new way of transportation that hadn't been built yet.

i dont know. like after the industrial revolution i think
Corduroy roads are roads that are built with logs or poles placed across swampy or unstable ground. This type of road was used by wheeled vehicles and horses. Cattle and herds of pigs or sheep were not allowed on the road because of spaces between the logs and poles. Sometimes hewed or sawn lumber was used in the corduroy road. Look up some of the books about the old days written by Eric Sloane.
They are called corduroy roads. The purpose of this road was to enable wagons and artillery to travel in areas that were prone to wet weather or low swamp areas so they would not sink in the mud. They also aided infantry and cavalry to travel easier as well.
