Traffic and housing problems in major cities could be solved by moving large companies and factories and their employees to the countryside. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?
It goes without saying that the major causes leading the traffic congestion are the high number of vehicles and the development of the economy, so housing and traffic problems are becoming a prominent concern in the modern era. This matter could be resolved when large industries, as well as corporate offices, should move to the suburbs of the country. However, I completely agree with the statement. I would like to explicate it at length in the paragraphs to come.
To begin with, the traffic problems are rapidly skyrocketed in the past years and becoming serious trouble among individuals, so people often get late for their jobs and miss other crucial errands. In other words, in peak hours, residents suffer from heavy traffic lines as long as traffic blockage until clear. Although every individual has a car, they still often get late, not only on crucial occasions but also they have an emergency. For instance, following the survey conducted by the Hindustan Times, 60% of patients died because of this issue, and 40% of individuals lost their jobs or meetings because they could not reach in a given time frame.
Second, the housing problem is suddenly increasing with the growth of the population in metropolitan cities. Afterwards, every town converted into hustle-bustle crowding; therefore, cheap and low-budget apartments drastically declined, thus leading to mostly families deprived of shelters in cities. As a result, they occupy the area near roads, which causes massive traffic problems. Furthermore, they cite an example, a majority of employees always prefer to live nearby the location of companies, either labourer lives in industries and go settle there. If it should replace the industry with a housing estate and re-allocate to countryside apartments, wheels get free and available at low fares for natives. Add it, most companies use drastic chemicals, and not only that transfer into the water, which is being used for household supplies. So, people get affected with serious health problems and are not unable to control easily.
To put it in a nutshell, I pen down saying that industries must be shifted to the surroundings of the country, which can solve this issue and lives a life according to their desires.
