How highways make traffic worse

Expanding highways doesn’t do what you think it does.

Big, expensive highway expansion projects are the source of a lot US transport funding – but they aren’t a silver bullet for congestion relief. In communities that were built for cars, solving traffic problems requires much more holistic problem-solving.

Thank you, Aliran Admin for sharing this video.
Yes, I know statistics can lie but the argument for less rather than more highways is very convincing.
So, it is incumbent on those who supports building more highways to give their counter-arguments.

I suppose the video is an argument against the Penang Transport Master Plan.
Perhaps it is a pertinent point in time to consider how that RM 46 billion will be spent for future generations since the federal govt. has withdrawn support.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
