However, it is absolutely clear from the data that fast, efficient, high-volume road networks do nothing to create highly productive economies, and nor is the convenience of a city's road network a useful measure of its economic output.

The same can be said for bike paths, sidewalks, hospitals, and the internet. Does that mean that they're not important? Obviously, no.

Perhaps high volume road networks do not create highly productive economies, but they are a crucial and vitally important part on one.
