Various works

Bridges construction









And site boards on empty plots of land - difficult to say where they are as there is no project names and the numbering does not correspond with the map.

Looking at the pics, the buildings look nice, but there seems to be virtually nothing around it. So I'm wondering about how inhabitable this project is and if there are indeed any businesses around this area which would make people want to live there. Your thoughts are appreciated.
