What were the 3 improvements in transportation?
The three improvements were the steam engine, boats, and the car, along with improved roads. Watt figured out a way to make the steam engine work faster and more efficiently while burning less fuel. Steam could also propel boats. The first steamboat was created and soon made its first successful trip.. Later it ferried passengers up and down New York’s Hudson River. Water transportation improved with the creation of a network of canals, or human-made waterways. The automobile was also created. Ford created cars and used an assembly line to do so. Eventually, the amount of time it took to make a car went from 12.5 to 1.5 hours. And with that, the price fell from $850 to $350 over time. British roads improved, too. On the bottom was a layer of large stones for drainage. On the top was a smoothed layer of crushed rock. Now, even in rainy weather heavy wagons could travel over the new road without sinking in mud.
