In a number of countries, some people think it is necessary to spend large sums of money on constructing new railway lines for very fast trains between cities. Others believe the money should be spent on improving existing public transport. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
Some people believe that governments should spend a plenty of fortune on establishing new
high-speed rails for citizens while others regard that it would be proper as governments to
improve the transportation which has already existed. In this essay, both sides will be
discussed further, and a conclusion will be drawn.
Proponents, who believe to develop new railway lines, claim that would bring benefits to make our life become much more convenient. The transportation system in Taiwan, for example, provides several approaches for individuals to travel between cities, including the trains and high-speed rails. People spend about six hours traveling to the south of Taiwan from the north of Taiwan by taking the former, whilst the latter helps people to save considerable time, more than four hours on commuting. Besides, a number of people chose to have the work kept a long distance from their home nowadays and the requirement convenient transport is necessary.
Opponents, conversely, approve to improve the original ones, argue that they are convenient enough since governments add the routes and adjust the working schedule.
The MRT in Taipei, for instance, is welcomed by citizens because it provides the stops completely around Taipei and New Taipei cities with efficiency. The shortage for It is not working for 24 hours and the routs are quite few in some districts. If these demerits were revised, the residents would not need the new transport system.
In conclusion, in my opinion, establishing new transport system or not varies from city to city. In the cities with lower developed transport system, the governments may add extra transport facilities to accelerate the interaction with other cities. However, those have already developed a well-established transport system and the governments can just repair the original one instead of developing the new ones.
