The city council thanks you for your votes on the avenue expansion project.  Of the planned routes:

The yellow, blue and pink routes have been constructed.  The brown route is currently under construction with plans to extend it further bordering the engineering univeristy.  With the avenue expansion projects nearly completed, the council is debating on how to extend the tram line.

The pink route show here.

Here is the corner of the pink and blue routes.

Construction is underway for the avenue to replace the local streets.

The yellow route entends through the traffic cirlce, the purple route has not been extended as far orginally planned.

With the yellow route completed new sky scrapers and high rise buildings have sprung up.

The avenues have had the result desired.  Traffic now flows through this part of the city much more efficently.  Farms have been threatened and more developers are offering large sums of money for the farm land neighboring the expanding city.

Two farms were bought by the city for the expansion of the avenues.

The city is now faced with what to do with this now vacant land.  Two farms in this area remain, should development include these two farms? or just the available land?  Some council members want to construct a city services complex to the right of the traffic circle.  With the growing population the demand has increased for health, education, and protective services.  One service has recently been completed, the engineering university.

The new university is considering a partnership with local farmers for access to farm land if a degree program in agriculture is offered.

With the avenue extended the forested land has been sold to a commercial developer.

As the construction continues a small commercial strip develops on the corner.

The tram yellow line has been given approval and final designs for expansion along the avenue on the other side of the ciy.

The staging area for tram construction.

A large plaza is now in the location of the construction equipment staging area.

The yellow line extends along the hightech industrial avenue and ends at the rail crossing.

With the completion of the yellow line, new highrise developments have moved in.

With many of the farmers resistant to selling farm land, many of the homes have been redeveloped into apartment buildings and midrises into highrise buildings.  Pressure is increasing to begin development on the farm land neighboring the combined transit station.

Traffic has increased on this street.  The city council has plans to place a tram on street or tram on road line shown here with a station to entice more commuters to travel by tram rather than car.  The park will be replaced with a loop and station, trees will be planted in the middle of the loop.

Its time for your vote:

A) Do nothing

B) Tram on street

C) Tram on road

D) Dont remove the park, remove the street and plant trees!

MayorAwesome     I use Picasa to capture my in game screen shots.  Using the prtscn button on my keyboard and Picasa is the easiest method I have found to save repeated screen shots without having to leave the game.

Samerton  &  clarkjordan12345   A rural highway could still work and be implemented later, something I never thought about.  We'll see what happens with long term development.

Thank you for your views, votes and comments.

Might I suggest using Xfire? With it, all I need to do is press scroll lock and s and it will take a picture. Upon exiting the game (or minimizing) a box will pop up asking which pictures you want to upload or delete, and enter a description in the ones you want to upload. After uploading them, all you have to do is link the picture to simtropolis.

Example:

(right click > view for full size)

Only downside to this system is that you can't edit pictures.
