No LRT for Kuching until the Traffic Jam justifies

Sunday Tribune, Sarawak

July 17, 2005.

Sarawak State CVLB Chairman Datuk Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar said it is not a feasible idea to set up a LRT system (Light Rail Transit) for Kuching, Sarawak as it has yet to have high population and massive traffic congestion to justify the introduction of LRT.

So, does it mean that Sarawak will only consider to have LRT after seeing massive traffic congestions?

Why is it that our system of government always choose to be reactive?

Must we face a crisis before any form of planning or actions will be taken to resolve it? When will we learn to plan ahead?
