Service Roads

There are these wide highway-like ring roads that go around the city of Bangalore. There is an outer ring road and there is an inner ring road.

Parallel to these roads are the muddy roads that are called "service roads." These service roads allow entry (or exit, too) to the ring road. All along the ring roads, new buildings are being constructed at a very high rate. Therefore, these service roads are almost always crowded by the trucks transporting the construction material, labour and what not.

The condition of the service road is bad, in general.

I would say, these service roads are not the roads that serve, but roads that need service.
