Makeover of Orchard Road

I read about the $40 million makeover of Orchard Road.

Here are my wishes for this project:
a) Have a second level covered walkway to allow people to connect the whole stretch of Orchard Road. This can be linked to all the buildings.
b) Build a light monorail to run down Orchard Road connected to the walkway.
c) Have large multi-storey carparks on the fringe of Orchard Roads, connected to the monorail.

This will reduce the traffic congestion on Orchard Road. It will make shopping in Orchard Road more pleasant.

hi mr tan,

you have been making many useful suggestions.

however, inertial is supreme in bureaucracy

i believe that big companies and the govt would just look at the feedback and go :
"hmm, that's interesting. but because of XYZ and WXY so we wouldn't do that"

in every suggestions, there would be pros and cons. there's a tendency to reject based on cons rather than consider WHY NOT ?

based on your experience as CEO,
what's the best way to get common folks opinions through to the decision makers ?
