How strong are the links between ‘your place’ in the UK and your non-UK place?
Cabot Circus is a newly renovated shopping centre.
It was opened in September 2008, after a 10 year planning and building period.
The Cabot Circus development area includes, shops, a cinema, offices, a hotel and 250 apartments.
The cost of the development was £500 million.
Cabot Circus is a better shopping centre than Broadmead was.
Transport is easily accessible from Cabot Circus; trains – Bristol Temple Meads or buses – numerous bus stops all over the centre.
Lots of car parking; although you have to pay, so some find it easier to get the train or bus.
Created lots of jobs when the centre was built so that all the shops were fully staffed.
Although there is a lot of space to park, it costs quite a lot to park in the Cabot Circus car park all day.
Cabot Circus is still quite busy although it has been open for almost 3 years.
Can cause problems for commuters.
People who live in Cabot Circus’s surrounding area might be annoyed by the amount of noise.
Tata Nano Car
The Tata nano car is a inexpensive, rear-engined, four-seated car built by the Indian company Tata Motors.
Tata Motors began selling the Tata nano in March, 2009.
Very inexpensive car
Interior/Exterior design - The Tata Nano has a great design. The exterior, looks very small. However, on the interior the car has much more space than it's exterior appearance.
The Tata Nano gives you options; you have the choice of having air conditioning, or some other features.
Tata is considering assembling these cars at local locations; if you bought it in Mumbai, it would most likely have been made in Mumbai, therefore you could easily get it fixed if it breaks.
Lacks safety; no airbags, no wing mirror on the passenger side and no crumple zones.
Small gas tank; not very efficient.
Very cheap, so more people can afford the car; this causes lots of traffic jams, because so many people can drive this car.
Its top speed is 90km
Links between Bristol and Mumbai
- Many companies have call centres in Indian cities. This is because they can pay lower wages to people from foreign countries. An example of a company that uses an Indian city, is Orange who have a call centre in Mumbai.
