The Industrial Park

This area from Kalihi to the Stadium, which Dancing in the Dark covers, is pretty well supplied with industrial action along Makai of Nimitz. However they were built in the old days when land was easy come, easy go. Two and even three stories (with parking) are now necessities.

John Francis Wade 1751 "O Come All Ye Faithful," Joyful and triumphant are
 beginning verses that can be heard in churches, choirs, school plays and a variety
 of different places around the world during the holiday season. It is one of the most
popular carols, especially among the religious, during the Christmas season.

They are still building one story places in Kapolei, 20th century thinking. Should be a minimum of two stories (21st.)  However one more in one of the valleys in the Salt Lake area would do wonders for the traffic situation in that sector. It is a very heavily populated area too.

A new one in one of the valleys would be a good example of what could happen all the way up to Makaha. Even if each Industrial Park has only 1000 worker - residents of the area. That is 1000 less cars on the freeway to town. 1000 less cars contributing to the horrible traffic situation in town. And 1000 less cars coming back. "I coulda been home in 20 minutes." Old Waianae Coast saying.

The Bi-Articulated bus (two tandems) proven by the Chinese without a doubt, five times more effective than rail at one tenth the cost. Now spreading all over Europe.

Then the new kind of buses and more of them and the rail becomes superfluous. It was just the big bucks pushed by the Unions. We all know that and everyone got suckered in anyway. Now they all have to pay the piper. The North Shore, Windward have nothing to gain, but they will have to pay through the nose. The neighbor islands still haven't got a clue. Neil will not let the state go bankrupt. The Neighbor Islands will have to pay too. Tough.
"There is a sucker born every minute" ~P.T. Barnum.  -  PRP: "Wrong, its every second."

But somebody is going to make billions and billions of dollars in profits. They have already hired the men that are going shovel the money into the safes. As the new Mainlanders arriving say, "Easy Money from these Yokels."

Pub's Side Note: Just got into Google + and it is a little complicated (too much available for me) but the simple stuff seems right up my social alley. It has just about everything as social media to supplement our blogs. Guy Kawasaki has just written a terrific book "What the Plus!" Paperback on sale at Amazon for only $8.
