you are right. so, instead of all cheong to city, we must have distributed CBD which the government is planning
central (raffles/city hall/tanjong pagar), north (woodland), south (marina), west (jurong), east (tampinese)
with distributed cbd, hopefully the load of cars can be distributed to 4 regions ... when cross regions elevated expressway is critical .... ie: from tampinese/punggol to tuas
now is north, east, west all cheong to central and south ... and all current expressway is choked due to the exit to arterial road ... such as steven road, clementi
ave 6, etc
anyway, this is not a far fetch idea ... if 6,900,000 population ... sooner or later either go UP or go DOWN to look for more space for road ... LOL
the current quick fix is UPSIZE current expressway ... after this has been fully exhausted ... then what?
All this talk of elevated expressways fails to address the issue of driving from your house to the expressway, and from the expressway to your destination. If arterial roads aren't built for larger capacity (which many in Singapore have limited capacity), then all you are doing is getting to your local area jam faster to wait longer and using a very expensive bit of infrastructure to do so which has to do be funded out of general taxation, and that in turn means cuts to other government programs need to be made.
