Governments should spend money on railways rather than roads.
To what extent do you agree with this statement?
例如：public transport, emissions, traffic congestion, commuters, invest in, pollution, unreliable, sardines in a can, etc.
身體段2： 有許多人還是需要車去工作，或是在離峰時間出門，他們必須用到車 （舉例），可以理解許多人認為鐵路對環境比較友善，但是公車也是大眾交通工具的一種呀。
People’s opinions differ as to whether or not governments should invest their money in the railway instead of roads. Undoubtedly, both are essential infrastructures that the citizens use regularly. However, I believe that roads are used more often than the railway daily. Thus, I have to disagree almost entirely with the given statement.
Railway system has its limitations. Firstly, people cannot reach anywhere by train. They have to walk or drive to the destinations eventually. Some commuters’ companies are in the small alley where the train system might be difficult to be built. Secondly, it is expensive and time-consuming to build the railroad track. It might affect the quality of people’s lives and other welfare on which governments should spend the money. Finally, there are some side effects of building train lines, such as increasing the house pricing and causing traffic congestion during construction. These may not happen if governments budget for the roads.
This statement should be disagreed because it is inefficient to run the train service as often as it does in the off-peak hours, but many commuters might still need to go to work at night or in the early morning. For instance, night shift nurses still need to go to work at night. If there were no roads for them to drive or walk, it might be dangerous for them to travel between the workplace and home. Understandably, people are for investing in train systems due to the pollution and emissions caused by traffic congestion. Nonetheless, there is still other pubic transport, including buses, that needs high-quality roads. Moreover, some people might prefer a road trip to work due to the fear of pandemic or the spread of contagious diseases.
In my opinion, governments indubitably ought to spend money on both railways and roads. Roads are still essential for people and they are more accessible for most of them. People might need better roads more than better rail. Hence, I almost completely disagree that governments should spend money building better railway services rather than constructing high-standard roads. (341 words)
