Investing in transport infrastructure means investing in the future and ensuring long-term economic benefits for the country. This unique opportunity is sustainable and its effects are long lasting. As emphasized in the Business Roundtable report, the following benefits can be obtained with increased investments in the transportation infrastructure: Increased GDP growth - investment in transportation infrastructure will generate more jobs; the maintenance and repair projects will further boost employment and create jobs that are permanent and well-paying, which can benefit the middle class, resulting to an increase in GDP growth. Increased productivity - Efficient and modern infrastructure translates to greater productivity by improving safety, reducing labor costs, fuel expenditures, travel time and other unnecessary effects of uncertainty. Supply chains run more smoothly and the cost of doing business is
The current population of 320 million people is already a massive obstacle for development. In addition, there are many problems that are associated with rapid population growth some are known as insufficient food supplies, Economic insecurity, poverty and low standard of living. Rapid population growth affects poverty as it brings in a lot of workers, this depresses wages and increases poverty. Rapid population also affects the standard of living for example if a country has a real GDP of 1.8 trillion dollars and another country has a GDP of
With the rapid urbanization, the demand in China’s transportation system is surging, as thousands of millions of people pouring into crowded cities. However, the development of urban transportation hasn’t catch up the paces, so that demands of taxis or rides exceed supplies in most of cities, which also leads to unsatisfactory customer experience. According to statistic form IRESEARCH, China’s taxi and ride-hailing market is on high-speed development period. In 2013, total market scale is about 34.34 billion yuan, and it is still rising steadily in the following
That number today is estimated to be around 15% (Jordan Urbanization), indicating that an overwhelming majority of Jordanian’s, refugees and asylum seekers have moved to the cities. This rapid urbanization has put considerable strain on infrastructure, which translates to higher costs for the government and inhabitants. Specifically, these costs are sourced from increased pressure on housing, food and basic amenities such as water, with the most overall danger being increased and rapid inflation (Higget). So as a result of water’s scarcity, Jordanians are abandoning living in rural societies and moving to cities that can offer more water and a different lifestyle. This has attributed to rapid urbanization, which has put considerable pressures on the government and citizens economically.
According to Gottdiener and Hutchison (2000), many suburban communities have areas that become treacherous for pedestrians because of the emergent patterns of traffic flow. The traffic growth associated with this and increased aspiration toward motorization has meant worsening travel and environmental conditions for the population. (Hickman, Fremer, Breithaupt, & Saxena, 2011) In addition, transports in Asian cities continue to face difficulty in policy, planning, and implementation. The Philippines ranked 9th in the latest traffic index; in terms of road congestion. (Diola, 2015) The average travel time of most commuters increased drastically over the years.
The phenomenon for this is explained in inflation. Inflation is known as the rate at which the prices for goods and services are rising; consequently, the purchasing power of a currency falls. Inflation occurs in both underdeveloped and developed countries but it affects developed countries even more. In the past decade, inflation and hyperinflation have occurred more times than it should. This shows the carelessness and the ignorance of the governments and people.
The recent price hike for the toll charges brings many unhappiness for both parties – mainly the workers and students. This is due to the cost of crossing the Causeway suddenly went up by almost 400 percent. Even though both countries may earn more revenue due to the rising toll charges, Singapore would suffer in a long run due to the higher cost of imported goods. Thus, we have decided to build a monorail to combat the current traffic congestion and the high toll and VEP charges – mainly targeting on the students and workers living in Malaysia to
This both study shows that there is need of Mass transit system to overcome the need of transit system. So taking this study as based, the DPR was prepared by the DMRC in 2010. As per DPR analysis, existing road-based urban transport system of Jaipur city has already come under stress leading to longer travel time, increased air pollution, and increased in the number of road accidents. The share of PT has fallen from 26 to 19 percent. Also as per the report,(Wilbur Smith Associates) travel demand of 36 lakh (2010) passenger trips every day take place in the city, with 3.6 lakh trips during peak hour.
The use of land transportation and the demand of road usage has steadily increased in Dagupan City and this resulted to traffic congestion. Almost every day 700 to 1,200 vehicles are driving in and out the City. Most of these are the Public Utility Vehicles (PUVs) and automobiles. The Public Order and Safety Office (POSO) estimates that approximately half of all congestion is due to undisciplined drivers, special events, poor signal timing, or work zones. A strategy has been utilized to reduce congestion, and this is the use of traffic signal timing.
Traffic noise at moving approach is higher if compared to stopping approach. Average level of noise in study areas varies between 58.41 dB (A) – 97.4 dB (A) and exceeded the limitation which is 65 dB (A) at day time. As a conclusion, these study areas have been polluted. Increasing in population growth and urban planning especially in term of transportation system will give more implication to our environment. Therefore, action control of traffic noise should be
