As you may well have come to realise, living here is much like living in a real life Sim City game. With buildings and roads being added and the city changing form almost literally on a daily basis. If I don’t wander down a certain street for a while, a patch of grass has gone and a building or cark park is going up.
The original shopping street here – High Street – built when there was nothing else but wasteland, is now surrounded by building. Phase 3 of High Street is nearing completion with tantalizing heads of newly-planted palm trees poking over the construction fence. Promises of “Blankets of Green” don’t ring really true. You mean a pedestrian path with trees in front of shops, right? But…I’ll take it! Bring on the trees..all six of them! ;o) I’m looking forward to another stretch of pedestrian area to avoid traffic and hopefully there might be a nearer supermarket in there too…. More pics when it opens.
