The metro is so unreliable and it is very congested. One of the contributing factor is the amount of constructions. Several constructions (e.g. road digging, road blocked) within a few blocks appear to be quite common. It seems like that there is no real planning to ensure that construction projects are not exacerbating the traffic condition further.
