Of bridges and bridges

Ever wonder why there is a overhead bridge building frenzy around Tampines since 3 months ago? Below are several possible reasons I have managed to come up:
  1. The government have too much money and they decided to spend it so as to show that they are indeed doing something for the people.
  2. To save on electricity bill since oil prices have been going up non-stop.
  3. To appease the driving population who have been complaining of too much traffic lights in Singapore.
  4. To force the population to do some work-out to cut the percentage of population overweight.
  5. To make it to the Guinness world record for the most overhead bridges per square kilometer.

Why am I complaining? Because I have to carry a 5 kg stuff up and down the bridge today when they decided to tear down the traffic light crossing. *Argzz*
