A recently alarming issue is traffic congestion and accidents, stimulating people to hold different views of how to upgrade transport system. While some enunciate the idea of boosting the quality of public transport, I advocate the construction of new mega speedy railways.
On the one hand, no doubt existing public transport systems need to be improved. After all, they are the lifeline of a country. They connect every nook and corner of the country and facilitate the transport of goods and people. The best thing about public transport is that it is affordable and accessible, so by improving the frequency and reliability of buses and trains, the government can discourage the use of private vehicles. This will reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality.
On the other hand, I think the road system is becoming crowded with a limited ability to keep increasing capacity. Offering high-speed rail encourages more people to travel by train, relieving gridlock in city centers. Therefore, it is not just rail travelers who will benefit, but those who gain from lower congestion on the roads. One aspect of high-speed rail is that it is implemented as electric powered and energy sources can be renewable. In comparison, airplane pollution, which is a quite speedy means of transport, far exceeds even heavy traffic freeway pollution.
In conclusion, it is undeniable that the improvement of existing public transport is of necessity, I believe the installation of high-speed railway is of greater importance.
