A tram is a waste of space thou. I would hope they make it elevated instead.

Sadly yes.

IMO Trams are more suited for places with low rises and since LRTs are elevated they are suited for places with high rises. Kinda fits into the image. HDB highrises a.k.a. busy busy busy so needs LRT. One North = calm soothing so needs a less stressful looking tram system? haha

One North's buildings are so short already if they elevate it imagine some parts the viaduct is taller than the buildings. People climb more to reach the LRT than to their offices...haha...

Once I took a cab and then when I looked behind my bus came. So I prayed that the bus behind would be slower than my cab so I wouldnt get the feeling that I wasted money on a cab.

Are you sure? Comparable to MOE Building's height? If yes maybe a few areas only cause I don't think research houses have a tendency to locate their labs so high up for whatever reasons.

I just don't think One North is that dense or large enough to support an LRT system. And buildings there from the pics are spaced so close that there is hardly enough space for a viaduct.

Hahaha coming up with excuses cause I really hope its a Tram system.

Firstly, its something Singapore does not have yet. (Novelty factor)

Secondly, no need to climb stairs to reach the platform. (Lazy factor)

Thirdly, the environment feels better cause there are no viaducts hence less big concrete structures surrounding you. (Comfort factor)

Fourth, trams give you a more ''easy going'' feel than the LRT which like the MRT, are so efficient that they travel so fast and its all busy busy busy. (Psychological factor).
