Seeing as I have not showed a basic map of the region thus far, I have decided to do just that to commence this update. Though it shows only the main Island, It gives a pretty good representation as to whereabouts each region is - however, please note that the towns Cape York and Noble Bay have only just begun developement.
So Anyways- Now that that's aside, back to business! In today's update I'll be discussing the recent situation of the large township of North Hampton as well as neighbouring Barringham - A tiny region off of the eastern coast. Because of it's small size, Barringham is not the most populated or jam packed city, but rather a necessary pass through for work commuters along the Sunflower Expressway. Due to this fact, the town has not been the sight of many developements in the past until recently with the construction of a few luxury seaside condos, such as the Ville de la Atlantique (Atlantic Villa).
North Hampton, however, is a completely different story. As well as holding an important interchange between the Sunflower Expressway and the Northern Motorway, the town has recently grown into one of the most populated regions on the island. As well as this, North Hampton holds a key position in terms of trade throughout the nation - possesing the only route from the capital to the country's central port in Cape York. Some basic overviews of the region can be seen below.
North Hampton, as previously mentioned, has recently spurted and grown into one of the most populated cities in the region. With bustling suburbs and a small downtown, the city continues to hold high demand for residential developement as well as commercial, with agriculture - slowly but surely - being phased out of the picture. Because of this expansion into the farmland and continuous growth, many have demanded the government relocate its heaquarters to the city recently, and with true consideration of this request, the wish may become a reality in the near future. Until then however, here are some pics of the current township.
For years, the Sunflower Expressway - - Northern Motorway interchange has been of high value to the Commonwealth of St
. George due to its connection with the central port in Cape York, and with no plans of future expansion / routes in the future, It seems it will always reamain that way. Since 1976 the region has flourished due to its construction and the cities current unstoppable growth would be nonexistent without it.
A few images of the freeway - collision can be seen below.
