While the transport possibilities in Singapore (AJ 29.03.01) are very exciting, there are two differences between there and the situation in the UK.
Firstly, the nature of Singapore's government is, shall we say, slightly more authoritarian than that of the British government, so pushing plans through the British system is more of a long-term consensual process than theirs.
Secondly, our transport infrastructure and street patterns have grown up organically over the centuries and tend to inhibit dramatic reorganisations - tending to allow only piecemeal interventions into the urban fabric.
Are you advocating a revision of this method of piecemeal planning and consensus policymaking?
