Re: ''Battlelines drawn over Asoke elevated road'' (BP, Oct 26). 

This balanced and factual report invites one to ask whether a few _ 415 _ people on Asoke Road should hinder the potential savings of fuel and time for 95,000 vehicles per day.

Arithmetic tells us otherwise _ that the benefit over cost is overwhelming. Furthermore, the reasoning of the Asoke protesters concerning pollution, eyesores and land valuations _ issues previously aired by Sukhumvit shophouses when the BTS project was first proposed _ have proven to be unreasonable.
