To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

pakasai's picture

There is an ongoing controversy argument that whether governments should spend money on railways rather than roads. However, in my opinion, I believe that spending money on railways can make more benefit than using it for roads for several reasons.

First, train is the cheaper way to travel than car or bus. People should get the valuable public transport with the minimum cost and the government should provide the sufficient support for that. For instance, in my country, the train cost only 5 pounds to travel from Bangkok to Chiangmai, compared to the bus, which cost 12 pounds. Clearly, the governments should invest on railways more to ensure that people in their countries get the reasonable public transportation.

Second, the railways’ system emit less pollution than the roads’ system. Nowadays, most cars still need oil to make to possible move. Consequently, the carbon that was produced from the car engines will damage the environment and harm the living creatures. In contrast, the trains can use other clean energy, such as electricity, to propel the train instead of oil. This innovation reduces the significant level of environment problems that humans are now terrified. So the governments ought to persuade people to use this clean technology by spending more money on the railways, rather than the roads.

In conclusion, investing on railways contributes more benefits on roads. It brings the cheaper way of transportation and causes less pollution to the environment. I strongly believe that the world will be better if the governments invest more on the railways.
