Road to Bayokan + Airport Progress

Welcome back!

Well, the new airport's construction has officially begun.

Here is a rough plan of what the layout will look like (things are liable to change)

With the new activity, city development has already started moving towards the construction site.

The airport will be the first on all of Borneo with two runways, allowing for it to become a major hub for the whole region.

 

Here are some shots of how progress is coming along:

In the meantime I thought we could take a road-trip to Bayokan, a city north of Bandar Sabah.

The two cities have been linked by a cracking, steep, and dangerous raod for many years.

 

Recently the trip has gotten a lot safer with the whole highway being re-done to four lanes.

The new highway is a smooth ride, and part of the road has now been put underground.

Work is still being done, but the drive is certainly worth the construction delays:

EDIT: haha, I will give a +1 to whoever can find the oddity in one of my pictures that I forgot to take out... :P

 

Stay tuned for the full showcase of Bayokan, and more scenes from the airport.

That Highway looks extremely scenic :) . I'd love to drive on it sometime :P . Beautiful work on Bayokan, I can't wait to see the whole thing :). As for the Oddity, may it be that cropped tree in the middle of the road in the last picture? :O . The airport is coming along great! Can't wait for your next update, but until then 5/5 :thumb:

Looks great Sky! You've really mastered the SE Asia theme, seriously it looks unbelievably realistic. Thanks for those houses by the way, they will come in handy. Also I see you remodeled the Joro homes which have also been quite useful.
