Is anyone else really worried about the road network for these? Traffic is going to be an absolute MESS. I'm hoping the tram service is what will make things work, otherwise expect it to be a nightmare every single day.

The Metro and tram ought to do wonders. Once more facilities are up and running--Marina Arcade, Marina Mall, etc.--fewer people will take their cars out of their parking stalls. At present, one has no choice but travel for a decent selection of shopping and entertainment and one has to use a car. This won't be the case post-Metro and tram.

I doubt traffic will be a problem. Many rich people will live in that building. Many of them will not have to work so there will not be something like a rush hour. Without the construction traffic their will not be many traffic jams.

More importantly are there enough helipads in the tallest block ?
I think a lot of residents will own a copter (not me though unfortunately)
