It is true that there is a huge gap between the money spent on building railways and the resources spent on roads for the benefit of the latter, especially in the developing world.
, there are
massive advertising campaigns promoting beautiful cars and
contributing to the development of roads. In my opinion, the governments should significantly increase financing of the railroad construction as well as expand the railways' nets across their countries.
, increasing the number of the railways will contribute to the better ecology of our planet. While trains
more electricity than any other non-renewable materials to empower their engines, the cars
these materials a lot.
, the building of the railways is generally considered as less damaging than the construction of the automobile roads.
there are some ecological costs associated with the production of metal for the railways, the fact that trains do not
gasoline for moving makes the railroads much more beneficial for the environment.
, the countries of the European Union with very extensive railways' networking have less ecological problems than the developing countries with poorer railways' systems.
of the railways is more economical for the ordinary people. Expanding railways in any country should contribute to the peoples' well-being as well as to the expansion of the trade and economy.
, if the governments do so, it should
enhance the tourism on both domestic and international levels.
, development of the new railroad from Samarkand to Bukhara in 2006 boosted the rate of tourism to Uzbekistan twofold compared to the period before.
In conclusion, the more the governments spend on the new railroads, the more benefits the people get from it. There are not only financial benefits stemming from the higher budgetary returns from the tourism and increased trade, but
ecological ones stemming from the lesser usage of the petroleum products.
