I believe that the rules are very specific that underlined MFs ignore ALL terrain modifiers, so I would say that individuals don't get the benefit. Unless I am remembering this wrong, which is very possible. Anyway, this is part of the difficulty you face when moving troops and individuals -- the differing movement rates and movement changes with terrain make it difficult to coordinate individuals and troops together. WHich is part of the fun of the game, IMO. :)

Yes, that sounds right -- a minor road is like a city street, a major road like a highway -- you can blast a tunnel through the hill to get the highway through, but in the city you still have to do a switchback or take side streets to get up the steep hill. Something like that, anyway.
