  1. I hope our Government would invest more on mass transport system (more trains or MRT), Instead of ongoing Road projects which will only benefits the Car manufacturers and Arabs/oil producers due to our dependency on fossil fuel. Proposed Road Sharing (for bike lane & covered walkways) scheme is also not advisable due to our wet (heavy rain) & dry(very hot) weather and worsening pollution problem.

    More train will eventually reduce vehicles, pollution, accidents and promote safer & better (convenient/cleaner) future for all. Example, by adding 1 or 2 rails for Express trains (limited stops) on existing LRT & MRT will greatly solve our transport problem.
