Nowadays people tend to think it necessary for the government to spend more money on railways rather than roads. I agree with this idea.
With more money invested in railways, it’s likely to raise the speed and comfort level of railways. This may contribute to a more efficient life. For example, it only takes about five hours by high-speed railway from Shanghai to Beijing. Some business people don’t need to spend much time on the way or waiting at the airport. Also, the comfort zone makes it possible to handle official business, so they can generate more profits in less time.
Besides, there will be more railways to almost all the destinations if railways are developed by the government. In this case, people tend to go out by railway, which can reduce the pollution. As we all know, air pollution is an increasing problem in China. And most of the air pollution is caused by cars on roads. It’s better to solve it from the source rather than treat it after we have polluted the sky.
What’s more, it’s beneficial for international trade if the government invests in railways which reach abroad. There will be more exported and imported goods, which will lead to the sustainable development of the Chinese economy and meet people’s needs. For instance, the government has built railways between China and Europe, which promotes economic and trade cooperation.
In conclusion, there is no doubt that the government should spend more money on railways because of its environmental and economic benefits.
