The cover was in response to SIAJ's concern that Singapore's vehicle population was growing unchecked. It noted that Singapore now had over 100,000 vehicles and was headed towards half a million. "Can we afford to have 9 lanes in North Bridge Road?" stated the cover note. The institute urged the government to implement a rapid transit system in the central area as the present number of passenger cars meant that 10 multi-storied carparks were needed to be built.
