The Dirt Path is a basic form of travel that will speed up Labourers walking speed if they walk over them. The Dirt Road has no resource cost and can be used very early on to help increase travel times. A Dirt Road can only be built in horizontal and vertical lines, meaning to make diagonal roads, they must be built in a zigzag pattern. Labourers will generally stick to roads to get where they are going, but may take short-cuts if they are available, such as cutting corners, which can hint at the player where to add more roads. A Dirt Road cannot be directly upgraded to a Stone Road, they need to have the Stone Road selected and built over them, which will remove the Dirt Road until the Stone Road is completed.
