Streets are urban roads.

Yes, but in English language the term road is generic while street refers only to urban roads.

Infact there aren't only urban roads in Maldives. Just I can't post everything on the same day...!

Here Addu Atoll with the longest road on Maldives, 14 Km long as Coccodrillo said. This road is called "Link Road" cause it links two atolls.

Not necessarily, look at Waitling Street for example. Generally streets are urban but not always, languages are never as simple as that

To protect the road, workers lay out metal sheets under the crane to drive on. Never saw workers do this here.
