Traffic in Singapore

I am living in Singapore for last 4 months only. But it seems the traffic situation is getting worse sometimes. The transportation seems to be overall good when you are traveling using MRT. But if you would have to travel by Bus or Taxi it becomes worse in peak time of the day. Specially when you are using one of the highway’s like CTE. It takes more than 40-50 mins sometimes to travel in peak times.

Overall the traffic does moves, but when it rains it seems more people take taxi or use their personal car which makes situation worse.

It seems there is lot of effort taken by the local authorities to improve the situation by introducing new routes & also there is new MRT line coming called as Circle Line which would ease lot of situation for the traffic issues hopefully !! .As per the website : it supposed to get completed by 2008 !!

    Look buddy, no offence. I know you dig Singapore, but for **** sake learn some English. Singaporeans don’t speak English as it is; you’re just cementing that stereotype (foreigner or not).

    Entirely off-topic, but in response to adrock2xander’s comment:

    And you’re just perpetuating the stereotype, no?

    Give Sandeep a break – I’m sure that he’ll improve as he writes more. I mean, it looks like all that practice you’ve had on your own blog helped your English, didn’t it?

    Besides, I think that you’re missing the spirit (and the point) of Metblogs here. It’s not like we were meant to write our entries with the MLA in hand…

    I’m sorry, but I would have to agree with adrock2xander.

    It is not simply about being grammatically perfect – everyone fouls a rule now and then (typo or otherwise). It is about coherence and simple journalistic style. It’s not just a community blog we’re talking about here; it’s Metroblogs – there’s a brand and a certain reputation associated with it.

    Sandeep, Rahul – please do not take offence with this and adrock2xander’s comment. You do need to work on your grammar and style, and I am sure it takes time. Slangs, colloqualisms and singlish are fine when related to the local culture of the Metroblog… But grammar and prose will make your posts a little more professional sounding.

    Continue reading and writing, intensively if you must. Before you know it, you’ll sound good enough for the papers.

    I have to apologise myself. Perhaps I sounded too harsh – I tend to be as I’m incredibly anal about English.

    Metblogs is a conglomerate of global websites that are read by thousands if not millions of people around the world. There’s a certain standard and expectation from each author to ‘represent’ that particular city. I’m not asking for the Queen’s English but at least learn how to speak and write it well.
