Increasing roads or widening them would only give temporary relief for about 2 to 3 years, and then we would be back in square one.
Instead incentives could be provided to companies to move their offices from cities to rural areas.
Most IT service companies do not need to be located in the city. All they need is good power supply and internet connection.
If infrastructure is improved in rural areas and incentives provided, then companies could become inclined to move there.
