Road Construction and Infrastructure Repairs? Not Now, Bad Move
Some politicians are with up-grading and repairing our infrastructure. Indeed that’s a smart idea, as when you enhance the flows of the civilization you receive back 10-fold in efficiency. However in the interim you frequently cause bottlenecks during construction and really harm the flows and efficiencies from the civilization.
Now then your worst time for you to do construction, create bottlenecks or up-grade infrastructure is at any given time once the flows of transportation have been in crisis. That might be with oil barrel prices approaching $85.00 once we transfer to our peak Hurricane Season and march off and away to war or perhaps a major showdown within the nuclear crisis with Iran. High oil prices together with over-regulation has put our Transportation Sector inside a major crisis which is virtually no time to include delays or bottlenecks towards the flows of civilization. But lets flash to the past in 2001 one concentrating on the same conditions. High oil prices, over regulation and an excessive amount of construction. Here’s an excerpt of the article I authored in those days
“Using the construction and also the hrs permitted they are driving reduced, more trucks are essential yet can’t be afforded as trucking companies consolidate and turn to hiring parolees as motorists because of the fact there’s no motorists. No rest stops to carry the trucks either because of the increase. Many cities rebelling without any trucks permitted on city roads for example in Nj. Remain on the freeway and driving though it may be now illegal they are driving greater than eight hrs and visitors are elevated because of quantity of trucks, elevated permit rules, lower sizing of condition staff to issue permits, reduced hrs to issue permits. What’s going on here? OFR, over-friggin-regulation, on the top of fuel cost increases. By ruining Americas distribution system we’re crippling America, and I wouldn’t be amazed if there’s a national truckers strike. You need to check this out nation fall to the knees. It might take under 6 days. There’d be rioting within the roads, operates on that which was left in the supermarkets, no power, nothing.”
Now then is that this really what our nation needs at this time? Or do we have to temper our push for brand new infrastructure projects until we are able to bring oil prices in check, build more refining capacity, increase using new fuel efficient technologies, solve the Iranian Crisis as well as their OPEC trade war efforts and take away a lot of the over regulation killing the now? I think you’ll will think about this in the year 2006 and prevent our government from making any longer asinine straight line decisions around the flows in our civilization.
Here’s an important dimension that infrastructure projects want to do highlights, and it’s easy to keep with, the digital change pulls the gap which is always digital (in the business sense it means data and communication technology) is necessary for efficiency.
