Letters: Better days by bullet train

November 20, 2012

Re “Bullet train leg to finish later,” Nov. 16

It has been my experience that high-speed rail has brought untold benefits wherever it has been developed.

The early decision to solve Japan's transportation needs with bullet trains had many side benefits, including the development of both industrial and commercial centers that were and are major supporting elements to the success of the system.

The same can be said for the TGV in France.

Jobs, growth and more freedom of movement are but a few of the positive elements from this long-overdue project.
