Actually I wanna post this up long ago.
But because Im in KL, I dun really have the time to do it. If I have the time, I'll just rest. Rest is very the important ppl!!
Although Im familiar with the traffic situation in KL, boy, im so surprised by the change. The usual morning n evening jam extended itself to 10 hour daily jam.
I've tried going out at 10am, 2pm, 4pm. All same.
PJ, Bukit Bintang, Sunway, Places between them, all jammed up. Especially MidValley. These are not even public holiday days. Gila wan.
Well, the reason is obviously the sheer amount of cars on the road at any one time. But a huge contributor is also because of - road diversions.
The city council having some heart, are doing road expansions and road construction projects to ease the traffic congestion problems.
Since major roads are affected, these are the roads where road diversions and bottle neck happens.
While having the heart is good, having the brain actually would help too.
Since these projects will take a few years to be completed, wont the traffic flow increased by then? By that time, you will need to undergo the same projects and the same congestions to ease congestions.
So its a constant jam - because of measures to counter traffic jams.
Very the weird concept we are having here.
While the infrastruture and time resources are hefty, we should just do expansions enough to last us two cycle of this nonsense.
Meaning - No constant jam - construction still in place for future measures.
