2019年4月6日雅思写作题目：Some people think that the best way to reduce time spend traveling to work is replace parks and gardens close to the city center with apartment buildings for commuters, but others disagree. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
01.With the expansion of cities, people have to spend more and more time travelling to and from work. As one solution to this problem, it is suggested that apartment buildings should be planted near the city centre in place of parks and gardens.
02.This idea, if well carried out, can be rather effective in reducing the commuting time for many workers. Living in the apartment buildings close to work can help save a lot of time because the commuters do not have to travel that much. They can even walk to their offices. This is actually a beautiful dream for many who have been troubled by the heavy traffic in big cities on their way to and from work.
03.On second thoughts, however, the dream may not be that beautiful at all. We can hardly imagine what the city centre would look like when millions of people moved into the numerous apartment buildings there. It would become a great deal more crowded and polluted than before. To make it worse, when they need to find a park or garden so that they can take a little rest, people would have to spend a few hours travelling out of town. Working and living in such a busy and noisy environment, people would not be able to find the pleasure that is so important for their work and life, and the benefits they have gained from the shortened travelling time would be undone to a large extent.
04.In fact, in order to reduce the commuting time, there are better measures than having more apartment buildings in the city centre. One such measure is to take advantage of the advanced telecommunication technologies which enable people to work from home. This will save them from travelling a long way to work and at the same time maintain their positive feeling towards life and work.
The traffic congestion is increasing at fast pace as a result people need more time to reach their office. A section of people believes that replacing all parks and gardens with skyscrapers to stay in will resolve this issue. However, many of them oppose this notion, as this idea is not effective in long run. I will scrutinize both this aspects in my further paragraphs before forming an opinion at the end.
To embark on, as our economy is increasing, so number of offices are also increasing. Earlier, people had fix time duration to reach office and short as well. However, due to traffic congestion and population, people have to spend more time while traveling to or from office. Many people think that this issue can be managed by demolishing all playgrounds and gardens inside city and establishing new residential complexes will eliminate extra time required while travelling to office.
However, many people do not accord with this idea as it has limited success for few years only. Moreover, adverse effect of removing parks are far more dangerous than time loss while commuting. Because, parks and gardens are the best source for carbon dioxide absorption and physical activities for children and adults. Can anyone guarantee that replacing parks will solve our time travel losses? Instead, government should encourage people to use public transport rather than private cars. Secondly, office times of various regions should be arranged in such as a way that optimum numbers of vehicles are on road during office hours.
To recapitulate, replacing park with new building will not at all help our excess time spending issue rather it will worsened our environment. Encouragement to use public transport, office timings reshuffling are probable solution to save time while reaching workplace.
