The maps below show the centre of a small town called Islip as it is now, and plans for its development.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
Given are two maps comparing the center of Islip at present and in the future. Some new buildings are expected in the future.
As the first map reveals, lslip town center now is relatively small. There is a main road from the west to the east with shops on both sides. The northern area is rarely countryside, while the southern area is filled with houses with a school at the end of the fork road in the southwest corner and a park in southeast.
In the future, the main road is expected to reform into a dual carriageway as a round containing all the new buildings. The horizontal pedestrian is probably cutting the circle into two semi-circles in the north and south. Bus station, shopping center, car park and new housing are exposed to be built in a line, replacing the previous northern shops from west to east in the northern area. On the other side, to the south of the previous shops, housing area is expected to expend with new houses built, while the former park may suffer reduction.
Interestingly, the school and houses out of the carriageway in the south may hardly albeit the great development.
