on the natural condition of the area and the preference of citizens. On the one hand, it is understandable if some people think that a
government
should expand more railroads rather than roads and streets.
Firstly
, it is obvious that when a country has extensive rail networks, it will positively affect the logistic cost. The selling price of many goods would be cheaper since a single locomotive could carry tonnes of crops, goods or liquor.
Secondly
, by building integrated subway stations in city areas, traffic congestion could be avoided.
For example
, as Singapore has a very good train network, called MRT, most of the people rarely drive on their own vehicles.
As a result
, Singapore is free from traffic congestion and air pollution.
On the other hand
, it is
also
important for a
government
to have some feasibility study regarding the geological condition of an area before they plan to improve railroads. It is a fact that some areas might not be feasible for railways, as those areas might be

build railway networks, the investment cost might be unreasonable.

also
make considerable measurement before they spend money on railways. They must ensure that their areas are suitable for rail network and people prefer that transportation system.
