Fault-line Harbour

City Fault-line

This second largest city in the zone It is full of colourful art, learning institutions, theatres, and museums.  

Steep topography soft ground and earthquakes have created a major challenge for building and transport networks but it provides glorious views. 

Tectonic movements and fault lines are common throughout the city. Interested groups learn how the movements have shaped the land and and the city's excellent harbour.  The last major earthquake (1830s&  8+ on the Richter scale) uplifted some low lying parts of the city.

Harbour ferries, trains, cable cars, planes and roads
all meet here. The wild land forms and violent weather sometimes cause interesting delays and difficulties.
