A close look at the mode of operandi of any business reveals that almost every move by the business is dependent upon one or the another Infrastructure service provided by the country - Transport, Water, Electricity, Landlines, Mobile Phones, Internet, Parking, etc. Moreover, people cannot socialize if the infrastructure facilities are not adequate for them to go out and engage with the social system of the country - meeting people, shopping, fun & entertainment, education, welfare, etc. Having realized the importance of Infrastructure Services for the businesses as well as the social system, it is hereby emphasized that the Infrastructure Facilities also impact the health & safety of human beings substantially - positively as well as negatively. There is a limit up to which the homeland in a developed country can take infrastructure developments. If the economic growth keeps on surging thus increasing demands on the Infrastructure, at some stage the country has no option but to start eating away the natural resources & beauty of the country thus chopping off forests/greeneries and convert them into cement jungles. This is when the health & safety of natives of the country starts deteriorating exponentially. A matured country should keep this fact high under consideration thus not hesitating in creating policies invoking major social changes in the interest of protection of natural resources, health & environment in the country. Overall, the policy makers should maintain a strong control on the capitalists who are desperate to grow their businesses & profits and thus try to influence politicians/decision makers to take decisions on Infrastructure developments in their personal interests completely overlooking the bigger damages that they may be causing.
This paper is a critical analysis of the impact of urban infrastructure of a developed country on the economy, social system and human health & safety and the balance that need to be maintained ensuring that too much of emphasis on one factor (say economy) does not compromise another factor (say Human health & safety) considerably.
