The Rooleyson International Airport (YROO) is the largest airport in the city of Rooleyson. It serves mostly for passenger services, transporting our citizens out to other places on holidays, and bringing in tourists to this bustling city. The airport is located on the east side of Rooleyson, on the edge of the eastern suburbs. It has a special road and highway system to allow of good flow and high capacity around this busy area. There is a district that surrounds the airport and the area called the Airport District, which contains 3 "sites" of industries.


Site 1 - This site was the first developed area in the district after the completion of the international airport. It contains low density high tech industry and some medium density too. A few low density and mid density manufacturers are also within the area. The site is now 100% complete, but is subject to expand west. Further details on that later, once the Rooleyson City Council sorts things out.

Site 2 - This second site is on the east edge of the international airport. It is made up of manufacturers, of low denstity and medium density. This site is also 100% complete, and further development on the east side will be part of Site 4.

Site 3 - The most recent site is the biggest one, mainly because of the spread out buildings. Medium density offices, high tech and low density high tech industry make up the site. At the moment, it is said to be 80% complete, but the remaining area to develop in the site is still being debated about by the council. The area was only recently added to the site. More area may be added, but is unlikely at this moment. More to come on this soon as the development of Rooleyson continues.

Site 4 - This future site has just recently been added to the map of the Airport District. Talks are being held right now as to what will go there. Most likely more manufacturers will go there of low and medium density. More news on this soon.

Here are some pictures of the areas...

Stay tuned to The Rooleyson Journal for more on Brokeford and Kathine Hill. Development of the city has slowed down overall, which may lead to less blogs over this and possibly next week. More news will also come on current debates and developments as well as updates.

Looks great! Two questions though, in CXL are the airports like in SC4 where you plop down one large lot or are they multible small functioning lots you put together? Also why does the IATA code start with a Y? Generally only Canadian airports start with a Y (Toronto Pearson - YYZ)

 @ un1 - The airports in CXL are like in SC4, you just plop them down. And yes, unfortunately as shown there they are a little small, but they still look good though. And yeah, I'm Australian, so I'm working off Australia.

aj1996: Un is talking about the IATA codes that start with a Y, their ICAO codes start with a C. You're thinking of the ICAO codes.

CXL airports look cool, i just wish they were modular. Great work!
